Michael Chernoff Does What He Wants.

In photographing Michael I discovered one thing in particular: Michael Chernoff does what he wants.

Its not entirely possible to ask questions of Michael Chernoff.  He seems to do what he wants, regardless.

I Wish I Was Scarface.

After a time, I threw aside the “questions,” sick of who Michael thinks he is, and decided to simply photograph as I saw him.

Michael is obviously ashamed of his face, so for a brief period I focused on different ways of portraying his presence.

Michael is shy and does not engage the camera, most of the time.

Michael wears Nikes because he thinks they make him run faster.

The majority of our photo shoots ended in Michael’s vicious temper rearing like the bear he wishes he was and your Humble Photographer was assaulted by swears and sneers.  But Michael’s soft side did come through eventually.  This is the only known photograph of Michael “smiling.”

    i feel like we will all end up hating each other by the end of this experiment because we will have had to deal with one persons flaws and insecurities more than most people/our friends have. It is hard for someone to capture another person’s relaxed, natural personality and i think youre on your way to doing that. 🙂 nice job cam!
