When I moved to California in 2001, I learned about the concept of ‘community’ with these people.
That concept has shaped my life ever since, so it is only fitting that I now apply my theme of documenting communities to my own community.
So, welcome to my community. My community of characters, who I met one-way-or-another through Walker Creek Ranch, Marin County’s Outdoor Education School, celebrated life together last week with a Cabaret on the Bay Party.
I celebrated our celebration by taking portraits. A lot of portraits, and because my scanner is not the best, my color scans need a lot of work just so they look normal. But the glorious black and white, of which I may have fallen in love with all over again, is close to perfect, no tweaking necessary.
