When I first started this project I wanted to capture people in their own homes. The couches they relaxed on, the kitchens they cooked in...all things that make a person more familiar, more human. The details of a home reflects the personality of its owner. And that's what I was aiming to capture. I wanted the candid intimacy of a person in their home written to film.
As with anything worth doing, this project was no easy task, and modifications had to be made. While I still firmly believe in the intimacy of the home, some subjects had to be shot elsewhere. But personality shines regardless, and each portrait shows some degree of that.
Experience is the best teacher in life. You have to capitalize on your mistakes and understand what works for you.
