best day/worst day, 2013
black and white prints from 35mm negatives
subjects were recorded and photographed after being asked to talk about the best and worst day of their life in as much detail as possible. everyone was willing to reveal with words, but not everyone was willing to reveal with body language and facial expression. some people were uncomfortable and couldn’t finish the roll of film while others talked long after i was done shooting.
i was curious to see how much people would tell me without knowing any information about my best or worst day, and was surprised to find that it didn’t matter. i think people are private, but still looking for an excuse to just say things out loud.
