Black & White Portrait 2

photography, 2015, 22"w x 34"h

There is a great deal of irony in the concept of photography. Since the earliest days of its existence, its primary goal was to capture a moment in time and make it last. However, in trying to capture certain things, it is easy for us to miss other things. We become so concerned with capturing a specific image that many other things remain unseen. In my series of black-and-white portraits, I instructed the models to come as they were. Neither makeup nor preparation time was allowed. The only instruction was to stand in front of the camera. I snapped each picture without warning and am ecstatic with the images that were created. I hope my models were able to see a side of themselves they didn’t expect.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
