Reaching for you

REACHING FOR YOU
Throughout your life people will always come and go. Some will be more important than others, but they will all make some sort of mark on your life. In this project I’m trying to hold on to these people in the truest form that I could think of, which is self-portraits. Everything in these photos is planned, from the specific lighting to the exact place the subject should stand. Everything except for when the photo is taken.
The person will be left by themselves in a room with a shutter release and they will decide when they feel ready to take their own picture. Since it is all done analog and you only get one shot, I have no idea what the result will be until the photos are developed. But I’d like to think that they are thinking of me when they take it.
