you have any ideas about extending the expression of the person into their surroundings/job/hobby?

@jerica what do you mean? Like, if the person I meet is a doctor show them in an exam room, etc?

sort of like Candace holding her drawing. like have something they feel somewhat defines them somewhere around them (but still close up, looking at you, like “nice to meet you and yours”). just thinking out loud, what i might do if i was a photog.

mmmm yes, I like this. If I do this project I’ll try and do that. I def wanna keep that portrait look I love so much. The kind like the photo of Jack.

YES. You should go until you get a certain target number of people, say 500. Or onto the other side of the globe or something. anyway, some goal where the people you are photographing have no idea who the people are you started with. then see how long it takes you to get to a person that knows the person you started with. A sort of 6-degrees of photography, while getting a high quality people journey in the meantime.

Yeah, I think 500 is good. I mean, it’ll take me a LONG time but it’s also a really good number. Good for a book maybe…
