Here in the photo booth section, we’re kicking off a new series: “For the love of photos”. We’ll be featuring a different style of photography from our Folio photographers and contributors. This week, we asked them to send us their best portraits and photos of people.
A Guard of Honour member dressed in the First World War period clothing stands at the base of the Centograph in front of Old City Hall during a Remembrance Day Ceremony on Friday November 11, 2016. I was covering the Remembrance Day Ceremony for my photojournalism class and had just lost my entire class when I managed to get on to the steps of Old City hall and managed to snap this picture from my vantage point.
This is a photo of my Nan, Olga. She is one of the most influential and inspirational people in my life. I created a photo essay about my Nan in order to preserve her vibrant, independent, Irish music-loving life. In this picture, she’s playing an accordion bought by her late husband when they lived in Newfoundland. Over 40 years later, she still treasures it.
This is Sonia Prancho. She is my best friend, roommate, and official cuddle buddy. I took this photo of her for a portrait assignment in a photojournalism class. My prof commented on how powerful her eyes were, and since then I have used her as a model in many of my photography assignments.
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
We spend so much of our lives staring at a screen rather than interacting with one another, face to face. It’s quite sad, actually.
This candid photo was taken of my friend Maddy at a house party. It captures not only her genuine happiness but an intangible feeling of youthful lightheartedness.
