Photographing the artists of Seattle Public Theater: 5 of 6

 

The second I met actor John Murray, I knew this entire post would be in black and white.

It wasn’t because of the color palette of our surrounding or clothing; it was all about John’s amazing facial features. Black and white is the medium that brings you back to the basics of seeing someone without any distractions and his classic face is so incredibly creative that it lends to his visually engaging character that has the audience of “The Language Archive” fascinated.  My hope is that you are just as captivated by John as I was during this shoot.

Check out his performance in “The Language Archive” directed by Shana Bestock at Seattle Public Theater.
