The first images for the Backstage Project were created in 2009 during an all day photo session with delightful model Elizabeth “Senator Awesomepants.” It was a fun and productive day.
We tried the balloons this day at my favorite spot under the bridge, but the wind didn’t want to cooperate.
Back in 2007 I was making my leap into serious photography. This young singer named Cathy had seen some of my work and came to me wanting me to make some photos of her as she was soon due to give birth and she wanted to have pictures that reflected how much she loved her soon to be born son.
He lies right at you
You know you hate this game
He slaps you once in a while and you live and love in pain
I’ll never fall in love again
I titled this rush hour because it was taken in Louisville during rush hour.
We shot this in a park on a cold, rainy, Saturday night during the ’08 Thanksgiving weekend. Tanya and I had become regular collaborators and we had set out to create more images for my balloon series. In this case my little red headed step-sister was a fabulous trooper.
I’ll ride the wave
Where it takes me
I’ll hold the pain
My art is how I breathe. Take it away from me and I become as the proverbial fish out of water, flailing and flopping about trying to get precious oxygen back into my blood.
