Grit Works (2019)
Since 2010, I have been giving rather than taking photographs to make collaborative portraits. In 2019 at Grit Works, a community space in Newburgh, I offered free portraits created on the spot. Participants chose backdrops from a wide selection I brought to the pop-up studio and Newburgh-themed frames I had made. On the back of the release form, they wrote a response to the question: “What do you want someone to know about you when they look at this portrait.”
