Anyone who knows me knows that I love strong portraits and am always exploring new and different concepts and ways to make them. This series of portraits was made with natural available light in a rather tight space. The light was beautiful and the space offered some elements that I probably would normally not incorporate in a portrait composition. Erica and I began shooting and I liked most of what I saw. The white wall on the left side was disturbing to me but Erica convinced me that it looked good and should remain an integral part of the composition. I now embrace the white all and its contribution to the images. As a photographer and artist it’s important to remain open and allow yourself to explore and experiment as this is how discovery happens.
