(Face)ets: Pakistan and Yemen – Photography by Michelle Weitzel

By Michael McVey, Skiffleboom.com

I would say that one of the most interesting jobs I got at my sign shop, Sign-A-Rama Cambridge, was from Harvard University student Michelle Wietzel.  She and her husband Billy traveled extensively throughout Pakistan and Yemen, and Michelle brought her camera.  Throughout their journeys, Michelle took some fantastic pictures.  In 2010, the Harvard Neighbors Gallery (Loeb House) exhibited a selection of Michelle’s photography, which I was asked to print.

It was a very fun job, and a welcome break from the monotony of corporate branding.  At the show, Michelle and Billy gave me a running commentary on the images, sharing stories from their travels.  Since I always carry my trusty camera with me, I got quite a bit of it on video.  Flash forward to late February 2011, when I had a spare weekend for a quick edit and… voilà!  A brief little video scraped together (more like salvaged) from the ever growing backlog!

Hopefully this diverts/informs a few dozen internet viewers, Harvard Neighbors Gallery gets some free PR, Michelle and Billy Weitzel get a video keepsake, and Sign-A-Rama Cambridge gets to show off their printing capabilities.  Everybody wins!  Except for my carpal tunnel.  Maybe some Qat will help.
