Weekly Portrait #44 – “People I now know” (Working Title) – Sarah.

I first photographed Sarah in October 2015, after revealing to everyone on Facebook that she was suffering with Alopecia we tackled it head on with some striking portraits – I’ll post one below but take a look here for the rest – rupertbarker.com/alopecia-a-portrait-to-help , a Weekly Portrait before I started this project I guess you could say. Fast forward 2 years and Sarah also sat for my 40:40:40 project (more of that in the very near future) and today we made some portraits with Sarah and her first wig.

The wig for Sarah is quite simply about choice, she can wear it one day, her familiar headscarf the next and perhaps soon, when the weather warms up, she can wear nothing at all. And so confident is Sarah, wig on or wig off, her personality radiates through……thank you Sarah, until the next time!!

Drop me a message if you’d be interested in being a sitter/victim.

For those of you who missed my other instalments or are new to my site, I set a challenge of shooting a self-initiated portrait every week of 2016, and as its the 3rd week of 2018 I thought I’d better get on with it……. You can find the rest of them here My Diary.

It’s a deliberately broad brief started under the working title of “People I know” already renamed “People I now know” I’m looking forward to continuing the journey, still unaware of the destination.
