Traditionally, Eastern Market was an indoor market with a farmer’s line outside. Since the 1970′s the number of artists selling their wares outside on weekends has become an integral part of the Market experience. Here are some who’ve been there since the early 90′s. These photos and many others, including archival images, will be on display for the grand re-opening of the Market in late June – check the Market website for details.
I was recently asked by the Capitol Hill History Project to photograph community members and Eastern Market vendors that they’d interviewed. What a joy of a project! Each time that I make my way through the Market to do a portrait of a vendor I am reminded of my childhood experiences there. Looking through my lens I see Mrs. Calomaris at the produce stall who gave me a banana as a child and now gives one to my kids or the chicken guy my mom secretly called Mr. Handsome. He is still handsome as is his son who grew up working along side him.
I’ve been doing more head shots lately which is always fun. I challenge my clients to think about how they want to portray themselves to their prospective clients and then we try lots of different looks, locations, etc.
We laughed alot – thanks to the great sense of humor of this stand-up comedian/management consultant!
The great gigs have been coming in this month! In addition to the many family portrait sessions in parks in bloom across the city, I’ve been busy in my own neighborhood, shooting for the Barracks Row Main Street’s annual report. These are outtakes from our photo shoot at Hill’s Kitchen, a fab new shop right before it opened. Check out the last pic of Chris, my wonderful art director, and designer of my new website, getting props ready for Leah, the store’s owner. Go, Chris!
