This page features environmental portraits shot on medium format film of a handful of WPC members by Louise Contino (Project Director), and includes corresponding audio tracks of firsthand recordings of the featured members' stories and songs.
Here the camera is reversed in the opposite direction and the WPC members experience what is like to be the subject rather than author of the image-making process. In return, you gain an opportunity to peer into their lives and gain a richer understanding of who really was behind the lens and what their perspective really looked like when creating The Collection.
The recommended way to optimize to take this "closer look" into the lives of WPC members is to first click play on the audio track of your choosing and then click on the corresponding image featured above the selected audio track. This will enlarge the portrait to full-screen and allow you to focus-in, making eye contact with the person speaking as you listen. This works best on desktop and laptop computers; however mobile and tablet users should also enjoy exploring the content as well.
All photographs below are available to purchase as a fundraiser for the people of Wanteete in the Print Shop.
