“All these portraits capture different sides of what it is to be a Seattleite, the experiences you may have, or the way you look at life.”

Seattle is a city of variation, texture, and beautiful misfits, and Valerie Franc shows the vulnerability in the seemingly invincible. She finds tenderness and humor under tough sheathing. Her charismatic subjects prove that if life is a stage and you are the lead, then play the character you wish to play.
