"Something About Me" Series, Dumbo Brooklyn

With the full intention to continue the "Something About Me" Series, I ventured into Dumbo, Brooklyn to ask complete strangers the question of "What's something about you that a person wouldn't know by simply looking at you?"

Below are the portraits and responses that resulted from my interaction with people who were such a sport for participating.

The strong point of the project has been that it clearly continues to give me a license of sorts to get close with people and into their lives a bit. The story of an ordinary person could be a fascinating one as long as you're genuinely willing to listen and care about their words.

I don't claim to be a photojournalist nor do I necessary categorize my work as such but at its most basic level, photography is about telling stories a lot of which comes from getting out there and finding interesting people who are willing to allow you to document a part them.
