Brossard Storytelling Photographer | As part of a family documentary photography course I took with Colie James, our assignment was to tell a story with photos. My first series of photos, to my disbelief, disappeared from my computer, and thus, on the deadline of submission, I had to come up with another series of photos to tell a story. On this particular Sunday, no one in my family was feeling 100%, and the thought of going to the grocery store was torturous, so you can imagine my chagrin and challenge to figure out a way to capture my family and adequately tell a story with such unwilling participants. When I photograph people, including my family in a documentary-like way, I give virtually no direction. I let things roll, so to speak. What you may not realize by looking at these photos, is that Ben was running on little sleep after having just completed night shift, two kids were under the weather, and I nearly got hit by a car grabbing that first shot. Also, we looked like a crazy bunch, my family members ignoring me, while I literally chased after them, yelling at them to slow down.
The things we do in the name of art.
