The Great Escape Family Portrait Studio

The family portrait subculture is buzzing about The Great Escape Family Portrait Studio. This newcomer to the market approaches the traditional style of family portraiture with the boldness of a shark attack and the iconoclasm of Thoreau. Tucked away in the mountains of New York, the unassuming portrait studio houses a full-size roller coaster, on which subjects ride so the photographer can capture a family in spontaneous, exhilarating motion. The theory driving this new method is that the speeding, careening movement of the vehicle will roil buried character traits, causing them to erupt on the subjects’ countenances and then be captured on film (see image below).
