A project on the people using Craigslist NY. Who they are, why they respond to the ads and what eventually happens when they get in front of the camera.

Over a period of several months I placed adverts on Craigslist offering a free portrait to anyone who wanted to come to my studio in Brooklyn and have it taken.

Some people would show up ready, knowing what to wear and what they wanted, others had a vague plan to become an actor or model and wanted to have pictures of themselves to help get them to their future careers. Some people were just intrigued, or bored.

Everyone filled out a questionnaire about themselves and why they wanted to be a part of the project. Their answers are included with their photo.

It was recently featured in Beautiful Decay Magazine,
