30 Faces of Pittsburgh Project
Step 1) Take discreet and unbiased photos of unsuspecting strangers in various neighborhoods throughout Pittsburgh.
Step 2) Paint 30 acrylic portraits of individuals from the photos.
Step 3) Upload portraits onto Facebook and open album for comments – What do you have to say about this person’s identity based upon this portrait?
Step 4) Compile comments and my own personal observations/speculations into mini-bios for each individual.
An exploration of the relationship between identity and the superficial/stereotyping in people we see everyday – strangers.
