"Staring Down" Phoenix Photographer Bryn Corbett
In June, photographer Bryn Corbett set up his camera at Downtown's Practical Art and began his video portrait series, "Staring Down Andy."
Each of the 40 participants had two minutes "to be themselves" in front of Corbett's video camera in a dark room with a black backdrop, and a few lights.
The result is still in progress, but we caught up with the artist at his Phoenix home to take a look at his inspirations and to give him a taste for what it's like in front of the camera.
Read more about the local photographer after the jump and check out the video above -- a compilation of portrait stills (with Corbett as the subject), taken in 60 seconds.
As for future projects, Corbett is hoping to find a way to have portraits react/imitate a person's facial expressions and moods when a person views the portrait. Corbett says he's not a Harry Potter fan, but he believes he can find a way to accomplish this ambitious goal without the use of magic.
