    Happy 2011 and my turn on SOTM

    I loved 2010. It was a happy year for me and saw the launch of unlikeness. In this respect I'm pleased to have met all 222 interesting people behind the portraits I took so far. Of those 222 were:

    • 169 (76%) Liked Portraits
    • 53 (24%) Unliked Portraits
    • 139 (63%) Portraits of female sitters
    • 79 (35%) Portraits of male sitters
    • 4 (2%) Portraits of couples


    Now also today, here's the result of my recent meeting with Mario from 'Someone Once Told Me'. We met at the old Fleapit with a new name (Brawn?!?) and chewed the fat for a good two hours. Then I took Mario's portrait (liked)  and he recorded a picture and a video of what someone once told me:

    And there's even a video! You can watch me mumbling along to explain why I chose "you're always choosing the bad ones" here.

    Nice start to another fabulous year. Happy New 2011!

    SOTM meets unlikeness

    I spent a lovely afternoon with Mario from Someone Once Told Me (SOTM). Maro started his project in 2006 and has built up an amazing catalogue of over a thousand images, posting one new photograph every day. I blogged earlier about it including a video here.

    Today we met and took photographs of each other.

    As it turns out we have a number of friends in common and I look forward to meeting Mario again soon. I'll also blog again, once my SOTM goes up.

    Someone once told me

    I had lunch today with a friend who told me about Mario Cacciottolo's Someone Once Told Me Project. Since 2006 Mario takes black and white pictures of people who hold up a large piece of paper, upon which they write something that someone once told them. Here's a video of his work:

    Amazing project.
