This project was born out of shame and regret. So many interesting people have come in and out of my studio over the years. It could be for a meeting, a casting, a party.....whatever.
Many times, I never got to photograph these people and a record of their existence was never created.

I always thought that the shear diversity of the people that I get to meet is one of the most fascinating parts of my job. I'm embarrassed to think back and realize that I have no proof. That is why I decided to start this project.

With the "About Themselves" project I am creating video portraits of the people that I meet along the way. The only requirement for being included in the "About Themselves" video portraits project is that I find the person fascinating.

The interview portion of the "About Themselves" project is based on the Proust Questionnaire. All interviewees are asked the same questions in the same manner. The goal is to take a scientific, objective approach to creating a portrait of a person.

This project was started in September of 2009 and I don't think it will ever be over.

Enjoy.
