I wanted to make a clear and vivid portrait of an American in today's climate. Scared, defeated, but not ready to give up. The talent did a great job of expressing a look of determination, and grit.
We took a very organic approach to our shoot. It was refreshing to break away from the shot list, and just let the scene play out by itself. Sometimes, a documentary approach is the best course to take.
The talent was very happy with the finished images.
