Over the last ten years, I have photographed 30 psychotherapists in the Los Angeles area. While shooting, I would sit where the client might choose to sit, facing the therapist’s chair. I wondered about the photograph’s potential to capture or describe therapy by way of an expression or a gesture or a spatial relationship. Is a look of empathy or compassion inherent to the process of therapy, or the personality of the therapist? Is it possible to achieve that look or effect when the therapist, and not the client, is the subject of the interaction? I posed these questions to my subjects during each shoot, and the pictures are, if anything, a result of the conversations that ensued.
