This family is creative to say the least. I met them through facebook. I have been following their inventive posts and finally got to photograph them in their cardboard robot costumes made for last year’s Halloween. When I asked the father, a graphic designer, how long did it take to make such detailed robot costumes, he said: “at some point the time blended in together and I stopped counting the hours.” His wife just chuckled and looked lovingly back at him. I caught that look before she put on the robot head piece on…. Photos from the Robot Family Session, soon. For now, just a preview of the family that enjoys time together through art that they create. Working with them inspired me. A bonus to me, a family photographer, always in need of a new vision and an inspiration.
I worked with Sal on image selection for his solo photography exhibit, on choosing the theme and how to present his images.
Of course he took my advice here and there and in the end he was running his own show yesterday at Wallingford Center in Seattle! Images were poetically titled and well displayed to a steady crowd of visitors.
So much work to have an art show, and then – there is gratification.
