52 Weeks

I’ve started a 52-week portrait project this year, and every week I will post one new portrait that was taken in the past 7 days, with 52 different people in the end. My goal is to use this as a place to experiment, meet new people, and push myself to keep producing fresh work.

Week 1 - This is Jesus Vasquez Jr., he’s one of the top three boxers for his weight class in the country.  He trains with his brother in a small gym here in Denver (the subject of my Brotherhood Boxing project), and will be fighting in the US Nationals next week, with hopes of gaining a spot on the 2016 Olympic Team.  He’s a great kid, and was kind enough to let me into his house yesterday for this photo.
