Creating visual permanence in a world of relentless motion.

A Portrait of Entrepreneurship

I am drawn to entrepreneurship.  Being present at the start or early stages of a new venture is exhilarating.  The air is so thick with excitement, possibility and mission that the atmosphere changes, thickens almost, and can permeate anyone who pushes into its sphere.

Ryan DiFranco conjured this sort of atmosphere as he created his new restaurant, DiFranco’s.  He was gracious and generous and allowed me to be a part of his process, inside the sphere of entrepreneurship.  While inside, I made a documentary style picture story that begins to capture and convey this spirit and process of entrepreneurship through the undertaking of opening a small restaurant.

As an introduction to Ryan and this unpublished picture story, here are two portraits of the entrepreneur himself.
