Putting Faces to Names: Getting to Know Your Favorite Bloggers

We all have our favorite blogs. And, if you visit them every day or with some frequency, you might find that you start to get to know the bloggers behind them -- or, at least, you get to know exactly as much as they reveal to you through their words and writing style. With her new project, Bloggers, Gabriela Herman puts faces to all of those names and shows popular bloggers in the environments in which they work. More often than not, that means otherwise average people sitting in dark corners in local cafes or curled up on the couch, the glow of a laptop screen illuminating their face.

A fine art, lifestyle, and portrait photographer, Herman has shown her work internationally and been featured on many websites. This project was a natural step for the Wesleyan grad; she is known for putting portrait subjects at ease, a necessary skill for getting these bloggers to open their homes to her. "I wanted to bring their intimate worlds to the outside public," Herman told Wired's Raw File, which recently featured her work. "Ultimately though, Bloggers is more about rethinking the way we experience the world, looking at how we live and spend our time."
