058.100 Jamie

This woman’s braided hair and thick scarf caught my attention, so I introduced myself and my project. She was only interested in having her photo taken if I could convince her that I wasn’t a creep (her words), but thankfully I was able to do so.

This is Jamie. I walked with her to a more suitable lighting condition and we stopped under an overpass and she posed well naturally, her training in theatre making her comfortable being in front of people. I think that her wry smile comes more from the oddness of the situation, being plucked from the street and asked to pose, but I like it. I’m glad she trusted me enough to allow me to photograph her.
