The Photodiarist

Hello. Monica has asked me to be a guest blogger on her wonderful blog while she figures out the world of new Mom stuff.

My blog is The Photodiarist. In my spare time, I love to wander around New York, the city in which I live, photographing people and things of interest to me. Over the past three months, I've been enrolled in a photography course at the International Center of Photography. The focus of the class has been the development of a personal project during the course of the class. For my project, I chose portraiture. . . but with a twist.

I forced myself to stop people in the street to pose for a portrait. Fortunately, not one single person I approached said no, which really surprised me. This coming Saturday is the day that I show my work in total to my class. In this post, I'd like to give you a peek at what I plan to show, although I must admit that many of these photos are also on my blog. So here goes:

WILLIAMSBURG- SHADES OF RED

LIFE IS ART- THE HUMAN CANVAS I

STREET PORTRAITURE I (Color)

STREET PORTRAITURE- SERIES V (2)

STREET PORTRAITURE- THESE EYES HAVE MILES

ANGRY CLOWN

STREET PORTRAITURE- GIRL IN THE SQUARE II

COOL BANJO PLAYER III

PEARL THE MIME VII

Note from Monica
:

I LOVE these images! And, I must say that it is so very brave of the Photodiarist to approach strangers and ask them to pose. I'm much more of a renegade shooter...randomly choosing my subjects while trying to hide from their view. I have just been inspired to try this! Thanks, Photodiarist!
