In an effort to help raise awareness about the dire need for registered bone marrow donors, I am proposing a unique photography series about people within varying environments with the common element of one ordinary chair. The final result is a collection of portraits on Polaroids.
I had an amazing day photographing Briana with the chair here in Houston, Texas. She is a survivor of a rare and deadly disease called Aplastic Anemia and she also a bone marrow recipient. Please click here to follow her amazing and inspiring story.
For a young person, Briana's perspective on life is brilliant and positive, she is an absolute joy to be around.
Polaroids from our day. I love how she was creative and incorporated her yoga skills into her photo-shoot.
I love how she signed the chair. Briana is truly a warrior princess! Her participation has added volumes to the project! I am thankful.
Ira Liebman, the sports announcer at Constellation Stadium invited baseball player Neil Medchill and myself to the broadcast booth. I was given an opportunity to share The Untitled Chair Project live on the air with ESPN.
If you're interested in watching the interview, it's the Camden River Sharks VS Sugarland Skeeters. Fast forward to 1:22 for the interview.
I am thankful.
