After researching about Richard Avedon and the series he did The American West. Gave me an idea to photograph used/old tools. His series he photographed the raw and rugged people who were not clean cut or in the fashion world. The people he photographed had stories to tell just by how they looked and dressed on a white backdrop which takes away what could be a messy background where the subject could be lost. Taking his photographs and adding my twist to it in a way. The reason I call it a collection instead of a series is because there part of the over all still life portraits. Another thing about the series and the collection is that the photographs are light not dark like my "normal" photographs are.
If you know anyone who has used tools or an artist with paint covered shoes or something that could tell a story like the tools let me know. The more interesting the better.
