The Project I’ve Been Wanting
A few months back, I had brainstorming lunch with a friend. We both had a desire for a project. Something we could return to and hold up an example of what we are about.
As a writer/photographer, I wanted something that would incorporate both these skills. People are really where my interests lie, so I was looking to profile a sector of the population. Elisa is an architect suggested we turn our focus there.
Our idea was born! Elisa put together the list and I began reaching out to dozens of architects around southern California. So far, we have interviewed people in LA, Orange County, San Diego, Santa Barbara and San Francisco.
Each subject has told a unique and interesting story. In addition to the interview, I’m shooting a portrait of each architect for the book. I plan to document the journey of this project – from the interviews, to the editing and layout, to approaching publishers, etc.
I will also post samples from the book as we get closer to print. I welcome your feedback, input and questions.
