Place Faces

  A Place Face is a portrait of a place with its people.

These unique portraits can be a town center, an event, a homestead, a landscape, or whatever you dream up. Usually commissioned work,  a Place Face takes on the tone and life of the ones who inhabit a location, and it emotes what the client wants to visually communicate about the place.
