  1. I love your blog and visit regularly. As well as the fantastic photographs, I love the humanity of the faces and the little details about the people's lives. Just a hint, but enough to get a sense of them. I am also in awe of your courage!

  5. Great idea for a project - I'll be checking back often. The little snippits of info are intriguing and make the shots so much more personal. Photo's are also great quality - nice work!

  7. An inspiring but so simple idea that I'll be following with great interest. Great portraits and the little snippets of conversation really add something special.

    Keep up the good work.

  9. You have a rare gift, Max. You just seem to draw the good out of people with your easy manner and then you capture it beautifully with the camera.
    I'm glad to have somewhere to leave a general comment at last! I've been dying to comment, but didn't want to single out a picture and so was tempted to comment on all of them!
    That might have been a bit much!

  11. Oooohhh! I had such a 'luvverly' time looking at these faces through your eyes...The things I can see when I'm looking through them kind of jiggle my awareness and tickle my visual tastebuds...Now my own eyes are seeing things that I used to somehow miss before I got myself jiggled here...I'm coming back to visit again and I'm bringing all my little mates with me...See YOU soon! http://1cheerfulman.wordpress.com/

  15. I'm a doctor at the Norfolk and Norwich where your photographs are being displayed. I'd noticed them some weeks ago but only recently stopped to read about the people behind the faces. The project gave me pause for thought and reminded me of why I chose to become a doctor: people.

  17. Hi Maxine, I am the sister of Jill who was face of the day on 23rd june. The sister she mentioned in Bahrain! The idea is fantastic, I am an amateur photographer and love taking photos of people too. Jill never takes a good photo, but you have captured her perfectly. I will be visiting jill in a few weeks so will make sure I come to see the photos on display. What an exciting thing to do everyday, well done. Which lens do you use most for portraits? Regards Jackie Falah

  18. Thank you Jackie for your lovely comment! It's great to hear from those with connections.
    I hope you enjoy looking at the photos.
    Re lens - the one on my camera (canon 450D) is a very standard 18 - 55 lens that came with the camera. It's not a good quality lens at all (infact one older male passer-by remarked 'you want to get rid of that lens. It's just a throwaway one!). But, for now it'll do, it does the job well enough. Affording the camera was one thing, good lenses can be almost as much again!
    But I tend to use aperture priority, as controlling the depth if field is most important in these sorts of shots and then use the widest aperture possible.

    I noticed your photos whilst visiting the hospital for the day and I spent quite a while looking at the photos and reading the blurb. I found it absolutely fascinating. Quite often whilst sat on a train or in a restaurant or whilst out and about you see people and you wonder about their daily lives, their stories their backgrounds etc so I found your pictures and subsequently your site very absorbing and interesting. Thank you very much

  22. The natural effect of your photos is quite amazing, the people as they are. Like Errol said above it is great that you put a small description of the person you photographed and some other information about him or her with the photo. Its quite wonderful to have a small peek into other people lives...

    Great blog and website, I go through every face :)
