I never get tired of the switch—the one that people make when they become a photographer's subject. The switch is different every time: posture, expression, complete acceptance or rejection. The only guarantee is that something changes in the time between someone is off camera to when they’re the sole focus. Sometimes it feels contrived but other times it can be sacred. Although I don’t believe it’s possible to make a photograph that captures an individual in their entirety, I still like to see who they appear to be in those moments. Katie is a dear friend of mine and this is who she was.
