Fitting In

Early post today, actually an excuse to break from writing a poetic analysis of Enron’s colossal implosion, and since the actually photo work is going down later tonight ya’ll get a capture from winter break. The two weeks of jam-packed portraiture that I’m still sending out to the subjects.

Whatever’s happening here, it’s working for me. I’d like to see how different it’d feel if he were neutrally emotive. If that tiny 1/100th of the image affected by subtle changes in facial musculature were blank instead of smiled.

I think with smile it better serves the interests of him, his family and his friends. But to the observant stranger it might be more interesting without the joviality. Less personal perhaps.

Off to some behind-the-scenes work, camera in hand!
