Lauren - Rittenhouse Square

My stylistic homage to Lisa Warninger of Urban Weeds Blog. Now if only I took better pictures... My interview with Lisa, by the way, has at last been transcribed and will be up in the next couple of days.
I've been wondering again—as always—about what it is I look for in a photographic subject. I haven't come to any definitive conclusions. But what I can say is that it's not about fashion per se, it's about the person. Earlier I suggested that perhaps we are shooting our surrogate selves. That still resonates, but perhaps it would be more accurate to say, we are shooting people we relate to in some way, even if by virtue of their conceptual otherness. With Lauren, I recognize a quality of commonality, but can't tell you exactly what it is.
