Lit only by the light of their texting.
2009

12" x 12" inkjet prints.

For the first 6 months of 2009, I made this series of portraits of my friends using only the light from the texting screen on their cell phone. The portrait sessions were also completely coordinated via text messaging. *Note that this was before the rise of the smart phone.
