Don’t Skip the Portraits
Ottawa, Ontario , June 2018
How fun was it to put a different spin on things, to take an assignment that on its surface seems run of the mill, and turn it into something special. How fun is it to focus on the people who own restaurants that aren’t popularized by instagram, and still put out great food? We spend too much time working to get through our jobs, or focusing on the latest hot spot. Ever stop and talk to new people, learn who they are. Is it possible to look up from your phones? After spending weeks working throughout the city, watching people look down at their feed, it’s time to look up.
