Summer Work-Cindy Neal
About a year ago I got my friend Cindy Neal in Atlanta to do a portrait of Madeline. Mostly because Madeline was taking pictures of herself on the cell phone since her parents were too stressed out to "document" her. I am so glad I did. Cindy has developed this amazing experience for the child were she interviews them, photographs them and the artifact is the child's story of themselves and this beautiful image. Her web site is www.narrativeportrait.com and she describes the process really well. Madeline feels really connected to the piece, really connected to Cindy (and has treatened to move in with her family a number of times) and we have this beautiful document of Madeline at nine years old.....Think about it.
