— “A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.”
— Edward Steichen
The Environmental Portrait is my favorite, as along with photographing a unique and individual personality, the style and positionsing within the chosen environment tell the story of the person.
I photographed this artist for the New York Times for a story about Book Art and Book Artists, Here the subject holds a book she created and is photographed in front of the writer's cabin her husband built for her to work in. The image tells the story of the author's book art creation with her storybook writers's cabin in the background filled with personality and uniqueness.
I photographed this Environmental portrati of an artist in her upstate Barn turned gorgeous and spacious home for Wharton Alumni magazine.
A croquet player in this story-telling portrait I photographed for the NY Times for a story about private Croquet courts at people's homes.
