  1. I like the photos. And the 1 and 3 dress of Juliette Hogan (from another post) are awesome!

  3. Oh my. These portraits are incredibly moving. I’d love to know how to converse with people and take their portraits. It’s an amazing talent to have.

    Erica, I find it really, really hard. REALLY hard. Especially when they speak Italian and I don’t. I’ve only just started doing it and the way I talk myself into it is by figuring the worst they can say is no! And since I’ve been doing it, only one person has. I think it also helps that I’m a girl and I only ever really ask men.

    I think the fact that I find it so hard to ask makes it all the more satisfying when I get the film back and see their faces again. Sometimes I’m so elated after I’ve taken a photo that I just want to cry.

    Alison, I just make it up as I go along. I don’t even know how to use my camera properly…
