Someone I Know
Since 2008, curator Stuart Pilkington has created projects that allows for a wide variety of photographic responses to a theme or idea. His recent effort is Someone I know, a portrait exhibition that brings together established and emerging photographers around the globe.
He simply asked selected photographers to take a portrait of someone they know, no matter how loosely interpreted. The project is conscious of the fact that just like plumbers not having finished bathrooms and dentists having bad teeth, photographers don’t often apply their trade to people closer to home. It’s a chance for the people taking part to see if they can express their relationship with someone through means of a photograph.
I am sharing a handful of my favorite images today (and, okay, one of mine…), but spend some time on the site to see the entire collection.
