It’s been just about six years since I started my 1000faces project. The first photo that I count was this one taken in Austin, TX back on March 5, 2008. I don’t know who she is but it was her 21st birthday.
I’ve now photographed almost 4,000 faces and for some reason they’ve been getting more attention lately. Since my Flickr account hit 2M views today I decided to share the 10 ten faces (based on views), so here they are:
I photographed this woman with red lipstick and a red headband on the street in Montreal.
This is a professor at MIT that I photographed in the basement of the old Media Lab.
This is one of my colleagues at InkHouse, outside our old office on Crescent Street in Waltham.
Here’s my wonderful wife Wendy.
Another colleague outside our Crescent Street office.
A couple of years ago I photographed MIT’s emTech conference and took this one.
This is Omar Tawakol of BlueKai, taken at Craft in New York.
This is another colleague out on the streets in New York very late one night.
This was taken late one night (or early one morning) in a bar in New York.
Also in a bar, in New York – but not so late.
While I like some of these pictures, they probably wouldn’t me on my top 10 list, but these are the faces that have had the most views. Can’t explain it, not sure what to make of it but it is what it is.
