I want to pay homage to human beings all over the world who have seen the world spin around on its axis for more days than many can even comprehend. They have laughed, cried, sang, danced, cursed and loved for a lifetime and more and it shows in their demeanor, their expressions, their actions and even in their inaction.
So for this project, my elderly grandfather would make a superb photography subject. I want to create a photograph that is emotive, moody and full of depth and character. His face tells us the difficulties, strifes, hardship, happiness, love and laughter of life. My photograpghy skills are quite limited and I do wonder how I will express these emotions and feelings in a photography portrait.
