A photographer is a person who will follow you from behind his lens and try to catch the right moment when the stars will converge so that your pose, clothes and facial expression will be perfect. He knows exactly where to put your hand, how to stand up properly, which shoulder to lift and where to tilt your head so that "this particular wrinkle disappears and the face becomes narrower."
But what happens if you put a photographer in your place? To take the camera out of his hands, but at the same time leave the same nice guy looking intently into the viewfinder of his working tool? What is hidden behind the mask of the "carcass" and the lens?
This question was asked by American photographer Rich Johnson. And immediately tried to find the answer in a manner peculiar to the photographer.
The hardest thing for the model photographers was to keep the facial expression they were doing behind the camera. Someone managed to "expose" the first time, someone had to reshoot. Despite the fact that directing a model during the shooting process is part of their profession, many masters, once in front of the lens, were lost and did not know what to do.
The essence of the project was to take a portrait of the photographer in the process of work, but at the same time deprive him of a mask in the form of a camera. First, Rich took a picture of a photographer with a camera, and then asked the assistant to remove the camera.
