The Blondes







     My friends and I were out to lunch one day and we overheard some girls sitting near us talking about how my whole group looked the same. I found this really interesting because to me, my friends all look very different. 
     I decided to take this idea and incorporate it into my series project for photography class. I shot five of my friends using a film camera in the studio at my school. Then I processed and printed the film in the darkroom and mounted the photos on black poster board. I'm thrilled with how the final piece turned out!

  1. Those pictures are really cool, they look very professional! The concept behind it is also really interesting as well.

  2. I really like the idea behind this - I suppose when you know people personally you can see their personality as much as their general appearance when you look at them, but strangers will just take the first aesthetic thing they notice and mark you in their heads as that... I'm friends with a pair of very similar but non identical twins at uni and when we first met them we thought they were identical until we got to know them, now I can't imagine mixing them up! Congrats on the gorgeous pictures :)
