The Visual Scrapbook of Photographer

I recently decided to start a mini project called Faces of Kentish Town, combining my love of faces and my curiosity about the people that I meet in Kentish Town (north London). So I’ve started photographing people I meet in the area and asking them three simple questions. Here’s Julia.

Julia

What is your name?
Julia Schuster.

What brings you here today?
The current exhibition at Free Space Project: ‘Traces’ at Kentish Town Health Centre.

What do you like about your face and why?
I like the honesty and vulnerability in my eyes.
I like the softness of my cheeks.
I like the tiny fracture on the bridge of my nose, it reminds me of a lesson I had to learn.
I like the way my face lights up when I am happy and how I can find different people resembled in it… One day I look more like one of my sisters, then sometimes more like the other.

I like that sometimes, unexpectedly, I find my grandmother mirrored in my face and this brings her back to me even though she’s no longer around since I am 15.
