Sep. 16th, 2011 @ 10:57 am photography project about book lovers!
I'm a photographer in Montreal and am starting two different series of portraits and am looking for subjects!

The first series of portraits is of people who love books. They'll be  on-location editorial style portraits and I'm looking for bibliophiles  who have a huge collection of books or work in a bookstore or as a librarian, or someone who restores/binds books or anything, really, as
long as it involves books! 

The second series is portraits of people who have a literary-based tattoo, whether it is a quote or image  associated with a book. I myself have a couple of literary inspired  tattoos and something I've noticed since getting them is how often  people read them but don't ask me about them. I always wonder what assumptions are being made, both about the words and myself, so this is something I'd like to explore with the portraits. This series will be done in studio. 

For your time, you'll get the photo and a print,as well as an invitation to the vernissage later this year that these projects will be a part of!

If you're interested in participating in either series (or if you know someone who would be!) reply to this post or  send me a message at julienicolephotography@gmail.com and I'll  give all the details. (If it's for the tattoo series, a photo of  yourself as well as what the tattoo is of and where it is would be great as well!)

Unfortunately, I am nowhere near Montreal, nor do I have any literary-inspired tats, but I would love to hear more about your project. It sounds amazing.
