"The People"


A Photographic Exhibit by

Andre T.McWillams

Recently I have embarked on an incredible journey that has reconnected me to my first love, photography. You may or may not know me as a photographer but a few months ago I gave myself an assignment to photograph the People of Metro Detroit. Sometimes you lose sight of things when you take something you love and turn it into a business.

This is my first self assigned project in years and it has reminded me of why I started doing photography in the first place. The project has aloud me to engage a variety of people in this Great City. Through that engagement I have produced over 100 images of Metro Detroiters. The images have granted me the privilege of displaying the series of photos at the Detroit Pubic Library.

Please Join me at the Main Branch Detroit Library on October 15, 2009 for the VIP reception. Register on StreetVision.com

Ambassador pets

Ambassador team member: Theresa Carter
Pet’s name and breed: Desi and Lucy, Havanese dogs

Desi and Lucy, both 11 years old, were born to be stars. Their mom and dad were chosen best in show for the Havanese breed. Unfortunately, it was discovered early on that the two would never grow long hair like the rest of the breed, thus preventing them from competing as their owners had planned. Since this discovery 10.5 years ago, they have been living out their years with Theresa. The Cuban circus dogs enjoy sleeping on the couch, sleeping in Theresa’s bed, sleeping in their own bed, following her around the house and running away from Sophia (Theresa’s 2-year-old niece). And of course, the quickest way to win Desi and Lucy over is to feed them scrambled eggs or cheese.

Ambassador pets

Ambassador team member: Lydia Jenaras
Pet’s name and breed: Oreo the English setter

Oreo comes from an extensive legacy of hunting dogs. His family taught him to do tricks like ‘sit,’ ‘down,’ ‘shake’ and ‘roll over.’ Oreo is very talented though, and he can even balance treats on his nose. Oreo’s favorite season is summer because he loves strolling back and fourth in the water on the shore of Lake Angelus (his hometown). He also loves to search for fish, and every couple minutes, his family will hear a big splash when he attempts to catch one before coming up with a confused face, and soaking wet body. And just as many other dogs, Oreo loves ice cubes as well.

Ambassador pets

Ambassador team member: Dan Edelstein
Pet names: Sasha and Madelyne

Sasha (the grey cat) and Madelyne (the black cat) are animal shelter rescue pets that Dan has since they were born. Both cats are seven years old, and they sleep on Dan’s bed every night. Each day when Dan goes to leave his house, the cats yell at him in tandem in hopes he’ll stick around for more time. For some reason, Sasha also bites Dan’s legs after showering each day, which happens like clockwork every morning.

Ambassador pets

Ambassador team member: Rebecca Stevens
Pet’s name and breed: Princeton the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Princeton is a very active dog who likes taking walks, rollerblading, and spending time at the farm hanging out with his uncles, Leo and Puck. Some of his favorite things are Paul Newman cheese flavored biscuits, his kitty, playing tug-of-war, chasing squirrels, and snuggling with his mom and dad. When Princeton first arrived at his new home, he flew in from South Dakota where he was born. His mom and dad drove to the airport to pick him up, and as soon as they took him out of his crate, he knew he had just met his new family and couldn’t be happier. When he’s being a “tough guy,” Princeton runs to the back of the yard and attacks a tree. He’ll stand on his hind legs and start mauling the tree, growling and biting it as well.

Ambassador pets

Ambassador team member: Adriana Lagrou
Pet’s name and breed: Benny the puggle

Benny is five years old, and also answers to the names ‘pork chop’ and ‘wiggle butt.’ Adriana buys him rawhide bones to keep him out of trouble, but he chews through them pretty quickly. Usually, rawhides can occupy a dog for hours, but Benny goes through one in 30 minutes. Benny loves swimming and gives the best hugs, and is great at giving high fives and shaking hands. However, Benny is very shy, and if another dog tries to come over and play with him, he hides behind Adriana.
