“Focus on Love”, portrait photography project

I have a Creative Portrait Photography Project in development that I would like to tell you about.

Every Friday between June and September of 2018 my friend Kate Shingler and I meet at my photo studio in Montreal. Over our iced coffees we debrief on the couples that we are about to meet, interview and photograph. It is what we are informally calling “The Marriage Project”.

The creators

Kate Shingler is a journalist and television producer in Montreal. I am a Montreal-based portrait photographer with a studio in Westmount.

The concept

Our idea is a simple one: Find couples who had been married or together for 40 years or more and interview them. We want to talk to these couples and find out what makes their partnerships work after all of these years and what secrets they might have to share with us.

Kate Shingler leads the conversation and I take photos throughout the short session. The collection of images and excerpts of these conversations will be compiled in a book as well as an exhibit.

After some discussion about imagery and style, Kate and I agreed that we both saw the portrait photography in crisp black and white images on a clean white background. This style of classic and timeless portraiture is a perfect compliment to the words and thoughts of our subjects.

The Results

This project is more than a collection of stories, it is a rich tapestry woven with love and true personal connection. These couples have lived together, grown together, and relied on each other over the years. Kate and I have been moved by their stories and experiences.

The Book

Our book promises to be an exciting collection of the best of these stories accompanied by a portrait of each couple interviewed. We will be launching the portrait photography book with a vernissage and book signing in the late fall of 2018.

Intrigued?

Do you know a couple who has been married for more than 40 years?

Do they have a love story that should be celebrated? If so, contact me at kate@fellerath.com so that we can follow up.

Each couple will receive a gift print and a place in our new book. If you would like to be on our mailing list for this vernissage or be advised of future artistic projects, please fill out the contact form and mention your interest in being on the mailing list for upcoming creative projects and exhibits. Or send me a little description of the couple in mind and why they would be great for our photo project.

Many thanks,

Kate Fellerath and Kate Shingler
