The County Fair is a personal project I created to push my limits as a documentary photographer. It is considerably easier working on an client assignment where all the expectations and schedules are laid out in advance. Working on an open ended project requires that I am both focussed while also being open to new possibilities which keeps my vision refreshed.
I find people reveal themselves differently in a crowd than with another person. I am fascinated with how the different County Fairs changes open bucolic farm fields with large rides configured on trucks , bright lights powered by huge generators and plenty of sounds and music and smells of food cooking. These photographs look closely at the people, the workers and the lights which radiate from these memorable places.
