Tomorrow I'm having my photo taken. I'm a little nervous about the whole thing, mostly because I like to think of myself as a behind-the-scenes person and I don't know what to wear! Regardless, I am thrilled to have Jeff Barnett-Winsby as the photographer. Jeff's work, specifically, the Craig's List project has received much deserved attention, including a solo exhibition at the Sol Koffler Gallery in Providence. For the portrait series, “Upon First Meeting,” Jeff recruited 38 subjects by placing a personal ad on the ubiquitous Web site, seeking people willing to be photographed at home, for either a print or payment of $15. Online viewers of the series enter via the Craigslist page. Brilliant.
