During the course of photographing this year’s class of People to Watch, someone on our staff noted that this was an unusually good-looking bunch. We didn’t mean for that to happen. A person can be homely, even ugly, and still qualify for our listing, which we define as people who are doing something new and interesting in the community. Most often there are new faces; sometimes there are old faces doing something new. All are faces, pretty or not, that you should be aware of, because they’re likely to be a part of the city’s future. As our art director specified, this year’s class was photographed in front of a background of simple blue, as though not to distract from the faces themselves. When you have people who are especially watchable, sometimes it’s best to keep the watching simple.
