3 years ago I began a personal project focusing on the people who make the city of Portsmouth what it is. Like an all star cast of characters these were the recognizable faces around town; long timers, community supporters, innovators, and keepers of history. I call them Portsmouth “Icons” (click here to see a gallery of the first round). I set out to create a photograph of each person that would tell their story and their connection to Portsmouth.
Now I’m gearing up for a another group of portraits to tell more stories of Portsmouth’s human interests. Stay tuned next week as we reveal a hint as to who our first icon of round two will be.
