In October Andrew Hida and myself had the opportunity to do a FEAR Project Community Portraiture event with the University of Washington, Tacoma Branch.
This involves a little bit of planning, some great volunteers from the community, and us to stand in a public place asking passerby’s “Would you like to pose for a portrait to acknowledge that you believe sexual violence impacts your community?”
After the day’s portrait making, we did post production, printed the images, then headed to the Photocenter Northwest to cut mounting tissue and dry mount the photos to foam core. A week later, these were displayed at the UW Tacoma campus along during an awareness event.
The best part was the multimedia which combined the stills with text drawn from an anonymous survey; unfortunately, I don’t have access to this while in Cambodia.
