It has been a little over two years since I have been photographing many of my friends and acquaintances portraits. Instead of only posting photos, I decided to do a mini interview with my subject so my readers could get better acquainted with the individual behind each portrait. For this post, I decided to feature Carter Agvent, a fellow PhilaU alumni with whom I stayed in contact even after graduating.
