There is a shared risk here. I think that’s why people are amenable to sitting for me for this project. IT’s living outside of their comfort zone…even for a few minutes, running the risk of being seen in a way that could feel embarrassing. But in the end, I see the joy in their faces, like little kids getting away with stealing a cookie from a cookie jar.
I feel joy too and we share a time together before they put their clothes back on and get back to a ‘safer’ more ‘normal’ place in time.
