Role: Copywriting, Art Direction
MUTE is an online photographic journal destined to serve as a creative platform for the regularly ignored and the socially muted. The homeless, the addicts, the abused, the elderly, the ones we fear we could one day become.
Being a photographer, I realized that despite of how intimately close I can actually get to my subjects, I will never be able to fully view and experience the world through their eyes. They would always be my objects and I their visual interpreter. I decided to wander around the streets of NYC on the lookout for characters to lend disposable cameras to for 24 hours. I wanted them to be in charge of their own stories for a change, through their eyes and not mine.
