This Actually Did Happen

One more quick detour, and then I’ll get back to the road-trip.

Just got back from the Filter Photo Festival in Chicago, where I took an amazing workshop with Susan Burnstine and had some great portfolio reviews (something I’ve hadn’t done in ages). There was also a beautiful group show called “This May Have Happened” with a rather bizarre call for entries ┬áby juror Gordon Stettinius, which I found extremely intriguing. I want to share the images I submitted, which I never showed before, and never quite knew what to do with them.

These images were made during the aftermath following the trial of the LAPD officers in the Rodney King beating.

Didn’t make it into the show, but the call for entry finally gave me a reason to print these.
