I pulled and prodded, texted my thumb off and finally got Faythe to come by for a visit. The Handmade Nation book tour has her all over the place and I am sure that the film will get her out of the house quite a bit as well. It was a real treat to have one of my favorite people and an inspiration to us all sitting for a portrait. She was uncomfortable and I was giddy like a schoolboy, but in the end we have made some fun images.
This new project has become very exciting for me. As simple as it is, it is very fulfilling and socially redeeming in its way.
