IN CELEBRATION OF JULY 4TH/ A 1976 BICENTENNIAL PORTFOLIO
While my studio was shutdown during the height of Covid, I spent many an afternoon roaming through old files and one of my most intriguing finds is this series shot back in 1976. For the life of me I can't remember any details of how, why and what creative directive lead me to shoot this little series but I've scanned the slides and thought I'd share. In July 1976, I had just moved back to the Chicago area from San Francisco that much I do remember. But what prompted me to take a drive into Wisconsin and how I met this young boy who was willing to give me a tour of his neighborhood decorated for the Bicentennial is a mystery. If anyone can identify this young lad I'd certainly love to contact him. And if the town looks familiar to anyone, I'd like to know where the hell I was!
