Trail Faces of the Orcas Island 100

My goal for this project was to shoot black and white portraits of runners at the Orcas Island 100-mile trail race in Washington in February, both at pre-race check-in and in the middle of the night, halfway through their race. I wanted to explore each runner’s personal journey of 100 miles through their eyes. It struck me that many of the runners, though weary, looked more relaxed and content in their night photos, despite having already run 50 miles.
