While I’m feeling less stuck on my overall project, I’ve been having some troubles with the formulation of proper questions. I need to come up with a series of questions that I can ask during interviews to get my interviewees/models to open up about their experiences, and to get them more comfortable with having their photograph taken. I have been reading all the Humans of New York stories I can handle, listening to various stories on StoryCorps, and reading up on how Duane Michals combined words with his imagery to help explain a narrative better.
Still trying to find people on the street to approach, still being screwed over by the weather. Will be moving inside soon, as well as starting a Facebook group/Craigslist search in hopes of finding people easier and setting up interviews.
Thats all for now, stay warm.
