Once a year each chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (A.S.M.P) holds their “Object Show”. The show really only has two rules, that the medium be photographic and that the object for the year be present in the photograph. The object in question the year I entered was an umbrella. This piece is the result of a collaboration between myself and my model, Damon Griffith of the Bullseal Collective. The Bullseal Collective is/was a performance arts groups in Pittsburgh that I was associated with in the mid to late 90’s. The group perhaps was best known for their “Eides of March March” parade through the South Side of Pittsburgh. Incidentally, we took “Best of Show” with this particular piece.
