THE BIG WHITE SQUARE PROJECT 

THE BIG WHITE SQUARE PROJECT??? 

WHAT IS THE BIG WHITE SQUARE? THE BIG WHITE SQUARE IS MY PERSONAL PROJECT, WHICH ALLOWS ME TO CONSTANTLY EXPLORE DIFFERENT WAYS TO SHAPE LIGHT, COMMUNICATE WITH MY SUBJECTS, AND BETTER DEFINE MY "STYLE". LITERALLY, THE BIG WHITE SQUARE IS ALSO A REFERENCE TO A FOUR-FOOT BY FOUR FOOT WHITE DIFFUSER (MAKE-SHIFT SCRIM) WHICH SERVES AS THE BACKGROUND IN ALL OF THE PHOTOS I SHOOT AS PART OF THIS PROJECT.

HOW IT GOES DOWN

I USUALLY TRY TO PICK A LOCATION WITH A HIGH LEVEL OF FOOT TRAFFIC TO SET UP THE BIG WHITE SQUARE. ONCE IT’S UP, FINDING SUBJECTS BECOMES SOMEWHAT EASY AS SEEING AS SEEING THE WHOLE SETUP A PUBLIC SPACE ENTICES A LOT OF PEOPLE TO STOP AND ASK ME WHAT I'M DOING. IN FACT, MANY PEOPLE ASK IF “I’M ABOUT TO FILM A MOVIE OR SOMETHING”. IT'S THEN THAT I EXPLAIN THE PREMISE OF THE  "THE BIG WHITE SQUARE" AND ASK THEM IF THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO SERVE AS A SUBJECT FOR10 TO 15 MINUTES AND  ALMOST ALL OF THE PEOPLE I'VE ASKED HAVE GRACIOUSLY AGREED. AFTER I'M FINISHED, I EDIT THE IMAGES AND FORWARD MY FAVORITES TO THE SUBJECT ALONG WITH A SHORT “THANK YOU” MESSAGE.

LONG TERM 

MY GOAL WITH THE BIG WHITE SQUARE IS TO TAKE IT ALONG WHEREVER I TRAVEL AND CREATE AS MANY IMAGES AND MEET AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE. HOPEFULLY, IT WILL BE A LIFELONG PROJECT. FOR NOW THOUGH, I PLAN TO KEEP SETTING UP THE BIG WHITE SQUARE THROUGHOUT SEATTLE’S NEIGHBORHOODS AND PARKS, SO IF YOU SEE US, COME SAY “HI”!
