What do you want to be when you grow up?

Published March 9th, 2012

This was my final project for my large format class last semester. I will be posting my favorite photos from the 20 picture series every few days.



Artist statement:



One particular area of photography I find myself interested in is portraiture, but not in the traditional sense. I prefer taking portraits of people that define their personality by letting them feel comfortable and not posing them in front of the camera. For this series, I placed several subjects in their own environments, asked them all the same question, and took a picture while they were thinking and responding to my question while recording their answers. I explored the idea of taking pictures at moments where my subject is least expecting it and while they are concentrating on answering the question and not on the camera.
