The Facebook Portrait Project - revised artist statement

For my generation, friend has become a verb. Of my college-bound and college-educated peers 75% have a Facebook account. Many of us use the internet, email, and text messages more than the phone. Following suit, I contact my portraiture subjects through facebook. I post my photographs to a facebook group called the “Facebook Portrait Project.” These photos are tagged so they appear on subjects’ profiles with any of their other photos on facebook. I don’t pretend to be objective, or to provide a diverse sample of people. I tell the stories of my friends, friends of friends, and even distant acquaintances. We ask for attention from the world by creating an online profile or blog. Each portrait I take is a reply to that call to be noticed.

Green Shopping

I finally remembered to bring in my little shopping basket so I didn't have to use plastic bags. Yes, I am so proud of myself that I took a photo to share. :)
