“A portrait photographer depends upon another person to complete his picture. The subject imagined, which in a sense is me, must be discovered in someone else willing to take part in a fiction he cannot possibly know about.”-R. Avedon

I am very much inspired by Richard Avedon, and this post shows my first attempt at my “Avedon” experience. They say that photographing your family dosen’t help you explore yourself and that its to easy. I say that’s BULLSHIT! Families help me explore myself as a photojournalist by pushing boundaries of access that strangers don’t allow. With this photo-shoot, I hope to show that families can be the true prep work that help push photojournalist access with strangers.
