I am starting 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 studio in NYC on Thursday, September 15th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. I would like to shoot as many people as I can. The shoot should only take 15 minutes 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.
To see a sample of my other work, go to www.kelly-williams.com, and look at my portraits. Come by on your lunch hour – I expect the shoot to only take :15 per person. The only thing I ask if that you please email be to RSVP so that I know how many people are coming.
