My first shoot with Paige, I asked her if she’d be up for trying out a different kind of test shoot. Different for me that is, maybe not for you. Hard to say.
Instead of spending the night shooting we sat down somewhere.
We talked and I got to know Paige. The small things.
Every once in awhile I stole a genuine expression during a genuine moment. A glimpse, a detail. These are the things a brain like mine sees… when the rest of me is sitting still.
I like to think that part of the genuineness might be captured, and possibly even conveyed. To you, the viewer.
That is my artist statement, of sorts.
I hope you find it as fascinating of a process as I found Paige as a person. Thanks much for your sla. Short for slang. You wouldn’t get it, unless you know her, which I guess is kind of the point?
A journey in documenting a person rather than a face. That is my new inspiration. I’ve finally found the words. More images like this to come.
