I photographed more than 100 couples at the Chicago Marriage Court. I wanted the photographs to tell stories about their relationship to each other and reveal something of their nature and spirit.
Instead of posing the couples I suggested they place their attention on each other while I asked them questions and photographed them as they reacted. I asked them to not talk (much...) and try to communicate with their eyes and how they held each other.
The first series of photographs were taken in the waiting area just outside the court rooms and during the marriage ceremonies. I've introduced the project in Black and White for the first series then shifted to color. The photographs in this series were created in an adjacent area to Chicago Marriage Court where I photographed all of the couples with some surprising and wonderful results. I'll be adding photographs regularly, so drop by for a visit.
Thanks for taking the time see what I've been up to.
