Toward the end of 2013 I was sworn into a very prestigious artist collective in Rochester. Dudes Night Out is a group of artists who like to inspire each other and love our city, Rochester. For our One Year anniversary show our theme was We Art ROC, artwork inspired by Rochester.
I set out to create a set of portraits that would showcase those who have made an impact on Rochester. I contacted a small group of individuals and asked if I could photograph them for the project. I was astonished when everyone said yes and I was able to pull the whole thing together in three weeks.co
There are plans to expand this project and hopefully included hundreds of people who have helped put Rochester on the map. If you have any suggestions of people I should include, please leave me a note in the comments section. Let me know who they are and why they have done great things in and for Rochester. If you have their contact info that would be a great help, you can send that to me privately.
