Friends of 3x1

The Confession Album

The 3x1 team recently participated in an interesting project called The Confession Album by Photographer Jean Francois Campos. Mr. Campos takes photos of his subjects that are "simple, stark, and free of the posing and artificiality that are so common in photos on the internet". Each photo is accompanied with a mini Proust questionnaire answered by the subject.

In the 1800's it was a common high society practice for dinner hosts to ask their guests to fill out short quesstionnaires and leave them behind as a sort of "Confession Album". Later on, a book called 'Mental Photograhs' was published in the United States with pre-printed questionnaires and a slot to enter a photo of each subject. We love Jean Francois Campos' clever "virtual" version of this concept and were all super excited (and nervous) when he invited the 3x1 team to participate. Check out the 3x1 portraits below and be sure to take a look at the entire Confession Album. Enjoy!
