This portrait series is called “Citizen of the World.” The lofty goal is to make a portrait of everyone I know or have met even briefly. It’s a life-long project, obviously, and unlikely to ever be finished.

The idea started with linocut portraits (6 x 6 inches) I made of people I met in a community project (“Making Our Mark,” a SKILLS/SNAP collaboration) in spring of 2014. Since then I have photographed many friends and family.

If you want to be part of this project send me an email. My rule is that I must at least have a conversation with you for you to be included and I need to take the photo that the linocut is based on. In exchange for your participation, you get a hand-pulled print of your portrait.
