celebrity (resting bitch face)
While the pursuit of your dreams is an American ideal, American culture has an unhealthy obsession with dreams of fame. The people photographed for this project are the celebrities our youth should look up to. They are defined by more than an aspiration to be recognized by popularity, status, or social media. These portraits show people who are characterized by more than a single word - celebrity. They are artists, musicians, engineers, educators, entrepreneurs, programmers, facilitators, administrators, idealists, philosophers, mothers, and fathers. The persons in the photographs were asked to wear minimal makeup and present themselves with a resting face. Contrary to their personalities, these celebrities wear a resting bitch face popular among celebrity portraits.
