announcing the Blackdrop Portraits (two sheds, geographer, botticellis, birdmonster; or, the whale; ian fays, BOAT, special goodbye)

July 31st, 2008

I’m pleased to announce a project that I’ve been keeping under wraps for a little while now: the Blackdrop Portraits. It’s a series of photo portraits of musicians in front of a black backdrop. With a simple background and a single off-camera flash, the faces of these musicians come out.
