That's right, a few HUNDRED portraits! I've been trying to prepare my trigger finger for a few days now. Getting it ready for few thousand clicks. Á bientôt!
Here is a fun project I completed recently for Timeline Theatre Company's 2011/2012 Season brochure. I've been creating photography for Timeline's season brochures for a few years now. This year was a bit different compared to previous shoots.
Timeline Theatre "presents stories inspired by history that connect with today's social and political issues." Therefore, I wanted the process of creating the images to be just as important as the final images. No gimmicks or Photoshop trickery needed. When we had our initial meeting to go through the four plays and talk about concepts, I approached Timeline with a completely different idea. I wanted to create EVERYTHING out of cut paper - no actors, no real environments, no scheduling the team to meet in four various locations around Chicago. Just me, a million x-acto blades and stacks and stacks of paper.
Here are the final shots as well as a quick three-minute video of the process. Be sure to check out Timeline Theatre Company for compelling plays inspired by our history.
