Place by Face

Project 3 Artist Statement
For this project I decided to illustrate a place through the people there and their stories about the place instead of literally showing the place. To do this I chose Barb’s Corner Kitchen which is a local diner that I believe holds a lot of character. I started by contacting the owner and asking him if it was alright for me to come in and photograph and interview the staff. He agreed so I came in during a workday and shortly interviewed four servers while they were working. After the diner closed, I photographed each of the servers in front of a black door with a flash. I am very happy with how the photographs turned out as they each expressed the personality of the person. I do wish that I had interviewed them more thoroughly as only one of the servers gave me a really interesting story and the other three gave more generic answers. I also wish that I had more people to photograph but that was constrained with the location I chose. I displayed the photographs on the wall, line next to each other with their names and quotes underneath their photographs.

I put pom poms on elevator buttons. This can be seen as an addition as it adds color to the elevator or disruptive as it might be harder to press the buttons.
