Upon First Meeting

Originally posted: June 20, 2006

Up and coming in photography: Jeff Barnett-Winsby is a New York-based artist whose recent series captures the portraits of people who replied to an "Upon First Meeting" post on, photographed in their homes. The beautifully constructed portraits of average-looking people are moving, intimate but detached, like most Craigslist relationships. They make me sad in a way that everything that is real is sad.
Among JBW's other series are poignant/ironic portraits of real cons with dogs...and flowers!
See more at Prints run about $2500 each, but looking is free!
