PHOTOGRAPHER: Tiffany Aufmann
SCHOOL: Columbia. BA in Photography (2009)
CAMERA OF CHOICE: She mostly shoots with a Nikon, but her favorite camera to use is the Mamiya. She first became acquainted with this camera when shooting her thesis in 2008. ‘It’s really easy in this digital age to just carelessly rapid fire at whatever walks into your viewfinder. I like that you need to slow down. You need to be more thoughtful.’
- Tiffany grew up 30 miles southwest, but moved to Chicago for college in 04, and stayed.
- She hates to play games. All games. Board games, car games, athletic games, mind games. Except catchphrase…she rules at catchphrase.
- Once a vegetarian in college for almost 3 years because she had a bad dream about eating the leg of a live cow. She now happily munches on a bacon cheeseburger. Probably weekly.
- Tiffany was the subject for a Character Project put together by USA Network. She was photographed by Dawoud Bey in Chicago 2008.
