First of all, I wanted to thank you for letting me in to your lives at the studio. I know it can be awkward at times but I think your story is important and I’m grateful for your cooperation in telling it.
Now that I know you all a little better I’m hoping to spend more time at the studio and be present for more of what goes on. I’m also going to be recording more audio and I’m hoping to take individual portraits soon. As always, I don’t expect you to act in a certain way or even to talk to me all the time. I want you to feel comfortable in your space and I only want to observe.
One huge thanks again for the opportunity to get to know you all. Here’s a rough sampling of the photographs I’ve shot so far, in a private gallery just for you. I haven’t done any post-processing at all, so the colors etc. are pretty ugly. Many of them can be considered “research,” because they have helped me gain a clearer vision of how to tell the story. That said, there are definitely some that will make it into the final project. I hope you enjoy seeing them! If you would like any particular photos for your own social media, contact me and I will edit them individually so they are web-worthy :)
