I am a fine art portrait photographer and am continuing a project which focuses on the power of language in our society. Specifically, I am investigating the many ways the phrase “Fuck You” can be said and the emotions it can evoke.
For this project, I am looking for volunteers to have their portraits taken while they utter the phrase, “fuck you.” You can say it any way you wish: angry, sexy, nonchalant, whatever. Wear what you want, look however you want — the only important thing is how you say the key phrase. I am not looking for nudity, but if that is how you choose to express yourself, then fine and I am not imposing any restrictions.
I will be shooting in a professional studio on Wednesday, November 30th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. I would like to shoot as many people as I can. The shoot should only take :15 per person. There is no payment for this shoot, but I am happy to send you the photos afterwards, and can also shoot a quick headshot or two for you if there is time. The photos will all be in black and white with a minimal background. The goal of the photos is a fine art gallery exhibition or magazine publication; these photos are not being taken for commercial purposes. You can see examples of the photos here on my website: http://kelly-williams.com/index2.php#/gallery3/1/
Come by right after work — I expect the shoot to only take 15 minutes per person. The only thing I ask if that you please email be to RSVP so that I know how many people are coming.
