Artist Statement

When did friend become a verb? Personal relationships are undergoing redefinition in our society. “The Facebook Portrait Project” is a color portrait series where I use Facebook to connect with my subjects. The project is circular; after I shoot the photograph is posted on the facebook site in the group "Facebook Portrait Project." My subjects (and others who want to participate) join this group within facebook. Everyone I photograph as a facebook profile and is somehow connected to me: some I see in my everyday life, others are friends of friends', and a few I haven’t spoken to since High School. I am exploring my generation and how the internet affects our relationships.
