Faces of the Community Documentary
This portrait series is based on the community of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Ontario, California. Through a sequence of personal one-on-one interviews, I was introduced to the diverse personalities and rich life experiences of individual members of the parish. The interviews concluded in a small graphite portrait of each individual which were displayed in 2015 at the Chaffey Community Museum of Art and then again in 2016 at the Ontario Museum of History and Art in conjunction with the 125th anniversary of the city. This project was a collaboration between CCMA and the Ontario Museum of History and Art with funding by The Community Foundation. In September 2015, the Ontario Museum of History & Art, Associates was awarded a second grant from The Community Foundation to publish the Faces of the Community project into a book.
