Last week, we published an interview with San Francisco-based fine art and portrait photographer Ian Tuttle. During the interview, he revealed that he got his MBA from Babson College in Massachusetts, and told us about his personal project for his class.
He took portraits of each of his 51 classmates, capturing an array of personalities with his camera. Mr. Tuttle is especially fond of this milestone, and of his way of creating indelible memories for his classmates. Here are some of the photos from his project:
Ian Tuttle shares his sentiments:
“I just got my MBA from Babson College and I thought it would be cool to make a yearbook for my class. So I traveled around the country to take portraits of each one of my 51 classmates wherever they lived. These are people in their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, and they have impressive titles at global companies, you know, vice president of sales, or chief operating officer, at places like Nike, Microsoft, Oracle, the Federal Reserve, but behind these titles they are amazing, generous, funny, interesting individuals, so I wanted to show that in the portraits.”
These are definitely not your usual yearbook photos. Got your own yearbook photos to share?
This week, we continue our campaign to make memories, with special focus on our former—or current—- lives as students. Got a picture of yourself on your first day in Kindergarten, perhaps? How about our high school graduation, or maybe even prom pictures from one retro evening decades ago?
Share with us your campus tales by writing an analogue lifestyle piece and including those childhood photos. Find the guidelines on our requested posts here. If you’re not up for writing and you just want to show the world those visual memories, join this rumble instead.
Why not change your user photos—-here and elsewhere—-to show everyone how you looked in uniform with an armful of books, or even without books, just having fun on the school grounds, or even a college party.
Share your photos via Facebook and Twitter and tag them with #MakingMemories and #Lomography hashtags. This will make it easier for us to revisit our memories, and build an archive of those unforgettable moments.
This month is dedicated to #MakingMemories with Lomography. Raid your attic, blow the dust off your photo albums, and share your favorite analogue memories with the world. Scan those photos and upload them to Lomography and your social media accounts, using the tags #MakingMemories and #Lomography. It’s time to celebrate the good old days through the magic of analogue photography!
