I had the pleasure of photographing poet Crystal Williams, just recently named as Boston University’s first associate provost for diversity and inclusion. Williams, previously a professor at Bates College in Lewiston, is a talented poet (here she is reading one of her powerful works).
The assignment was to photograph Williams with just a simple, plain background, relying purely on expression and pose to convey her personality. I love getting to know and work with people in this way. Here are a few of the images I liked most from our session, below.
