Last year over the course of 3 weeks, I was able to shoot 131 portraits of Memphians who were involved in all walks of life. You can see the results of that hectic month over at www.thisismemphis.com
So much has happened since that time, because of that project, that I want to continue my exploration of the people of Memphis in 2012. My goal is to take 100 portraits of people in their work spaces, their creative environments. I want to meet people from all walks of life, people that work with their hands, and businessmen who structure the deals that help build this amazing city.
I want to tell the stories of the people that drive this city. Everyone has a story, I would like to have the opportunity to tell as many as I can. I plan on shooting every weekend, to reach my goal of 100 by the end of the year.
But I can’t do this alone, I need your help. I need people to volunteer to be subjects, and to spread the word of the project. If someone is interested, please e-mail me at mkcardwell (at) gmail (dot) com with the subject THIS IS MEMPHIS. Or tweet to me @ThisisMemphis or @Stuicide.
I can’t wait to see what this year is going to bring.
