Wedding Portraits Project
“The more we see each other, the more we love what we see.” – Edie Windsor
As artists, Felecia Carlise and I used the Wedding Portrait as a frame to contextualize the political, social and emotional issues surrounding marriage. We asked Over 200 couples to participate in our project, Wedding Portraits. These were couples married in the first few days in 2004 when same-sex marriages were made legal in San Francisco. We invited them to have formal wedding portrait sessions with us at locations around the city. These images were then commissioned by the San Francisco Arts Commission to be displayed along Market Street for the first anniversary of the marriages.
