One of the early challenges of being a photographer is finding the courage to walk up to a complete stranger and ask to take a photo of them. This was the case for my latest project named “Profari Motus” which is Latin for the Speak Out Movement. The concept behind this project stems from the cliche, “a picture is worth a thousand words” where each photo explicitly outlines its words. The project was initially designed for the graphics section of the University Regina paper, The Carillon where willing students were given a pad onto which they were required to write what ever they could think of. The intention is to group the majority of these images together in a collage to literally create that thousand word effect.
It’s always interesting to see what others have to say, hence… “give a man a pen and he just may reveal his thoughts”.
Profari Motus, no captions necessary!
