[Canon 7D | 35mm 1.4 | Natural Light]
You know how people - well, I was going to attempt to be gender neutral, but I have honestly never heard a man say this - you know how women say,
"I don't dress for anyone but myself!"
Bull ish. I've always held that everyone dresses for other people, because everyone understands that clothing is a form of non-verbal communication. This project has gone a long way to confirm my hypothesis.
I approached him, told him about the project and he allowed me to snap a few frames.
Now, I have previously stopped strangers and neglected to get any information about who they were - occupation, interests, etc. I now make sure to explain that I caption the photos for the project. I then ask for the person's input on how their portrait should be titled.
"I'm a graphic artist."
This hypothesis is growing into a bona fided theory. I will reveal further evidence for my theory in the next portrait :)
