A collection of spontaneous non-posed portraits and written words, Seven is a study of the whole person.

Unrepeatable and authentic these single frame portraits, taken with a vintage 5×7 portrait camera and traditional B&W process, are grounded by the handwritten response to seven common questions asked of all subjects.

One singular exposure, one sheet of film, seven questions to stimulate deeper consideration for looking past barriers of first impression as we compare our human vulnerabilities.

The Questions

#1: Name one thing that frightens you?
#2: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
#3: What or who inspires you?
#4: What is your most used expression or word?
#5: What brings you joy?
#6: What is your favorite journey?
#7: What keeps you awake at night?
