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.
