portraits 1

portraits aren't exactly my strength, or at least i don't feel like i have taken any good portraits yet. but i'm trying to get better at it. i took several of them in the last few months, and i've been hesitating to post them here. today i decided to start posting them. i'll start with two, very simple, ones that i've shot on assignment.

Huntley resident Frank Kajikawa remembers his experiences as a fiteen-year-old living in a Japanese internment camp during WWII, on Friday, February 5, 2010, at his home in Huntley, Illinois.

I photographed Jenny Hanrahan, a Crystal Lake South high school senior and basketball player, for a story that focused on her being a successful student and athlete. Jenny lost her mom to cancer two years ago.
