Intersections

This project was a product of thinking about how to use the camera as a tool for collaboration, rather than just an instrument for my own creation. I was also hoping to marry some seemingly disparate influences of mine: the emotionally cool and formally radical work of the Institute of Design and the humanistic documentary portraiture found in Doubletake magazine. For this project, I asked strangers on the streets of downtown Chicago if I could photograph them and asked them to photograph me in return. I superimposed the photographs in the camera so that each photograph is actually two photos on top of each other. In the end, we were each other's subject and photographer.
