While We're Waiting

A series created by injury. I dislocated my kneecap while surfing in LA, had surgery, and was placed in a straight leg brace for three months. To keep myself from going crazy in my house, I carefully painted this grey background and turned my dinning room into a studio. I invited friends, models, and artists over for portraits once or twice a week to give me company and continue practicing my craft.

It occurred to me that my vulnerability created a unique interaction with my subjects as I hobbled around assorting the lights specifically to each person while slowly focusing the large format 4x5 camera. There was patience in their eyes, and their expressions seemed to reflect elements of my condition which were sincere, and occasionally humorous.
