Faces of the City

 

continued

It's a rare rejection. Campbell launched her project last year--one of hundreds around the world inspired by Brandon Stanton's Humans of New York, a Facebook page that features portraits of everyday people in the city. Since then, she's asked hundreds of Ann Arborites to pose, and she estimates that 95 percent of them have agreed.

Campbell admits it was "intimidating at first to talk to strangers." But now nothing will stop her. Walking on, she soon fixes on her next target: a mother and her young daughter toting bags from the Farmers Market. They're willing to be photographed, and Campbell asks them a couple of questions as she shoots. They share a love of art, but the mother says it's really her daughter who has the talent. The daughter looks up at her mother and grins. Click. One of her favorite things about HOAA, Campbell says, is capturing the "love and emotion between people."

Campbell is a fresh-faced forty-two-year-old with kind brown eyes and an edgy brown bob with funky red highlights. She owns Ann Arbor's Susan K Photography (her middle name is Kay), which specializes in children's, family, and event photography.
