I was going to do a set of men who are big fans of Harry Potter but realized I don’t really have enough photos to sustain it. Instead, branching off that, I decided to do a set of images of men dressed in unusual ways. There are some fellows in costumes, some in uniforms, a few just bedecked with some small element that says, “hey, look, I’m having fun!”
Two days without Daily Dozen sets. That’s not good. Yesterday I considered taking a hiatus but I like doing this too much to stop. What I need to do is prep sets so that when I am slammed I can still post. Some time I’ll try to do that. The thing is this is a pretty organic project. I like sitting down in the mornings to think about what I should include and so doing a batch at once feels unnatural.
When I started thinking about what to do today I was going to do men I’ve worked with; but then I realize that the last set was also of men and decided to go with women I’ve worked with. Being in PR means most of my colleagues over the years have been women so there were plenty of faces to choose from. I’ve been working for more than 20 years now but only photographing faces since 2008 so this is a pretty incomplete set. Of course even if I had taken one per year I’d have too many for a set so I suppose it all works out. There are a few photos from before 2008. It’s not as though I never took pictures, just not so many and few of faces. I hope you enjoy today’s faces. I liked (and in some cases currently like) working with these people.
I’ve posted glasses sets in the past. One featured rectangular glasses, another sunglasses (two sets actually – here’s the second) and one of rimless glasses. None of those sets were gender-specific. Today’s obviously is. While black rectangular glasses are the most common, I’ve tried to find pairs that stood out in some way, either non-rectangular or more colorful or with broad arms, etc. It’s interesting that the range of eyewear for both women and men is so narrow. Interesting and too bad. Glasses can be a great accessory but there’s just not very much interesting that I can see (no pun intended). Of course I’m one to talk since I wear black rectangles myself . . .
