Re-launch of The Portraitists

Added on by Martin Adolfsson.

In 2009 I began photographing other photographers in my Brooklyn studio. The concept was simple, I took a portrait of each photographer using a repeating strict formula: same light, same white backdrop, same aperture etc. Each photographer was free to depict me in any fashion he or she wished, using any type of medium, any time of the day, any environment, fully dressed, completely naked etc.

The project became part performance, part photo shoot, part community work. The project website has now been updated and within the next couple of months I wish to photograph another 38 photographers from every niche in the photography world including fashion, wedding, landscape, portrait studio, fine art, you name it.

Are you one of them?
