Pleasant Enough All the Same, February 15, 2009

Last night was the closing performance of the Court Theatre's production of Henrik Ibsen's The Wild Duck. As was with every performance during the play's month-long run, the crowd was fantastic, and many of the patrons were gracious enough to allow me make a portrait of them for the installation.

Below is a shot of Art Shay, whom I had the opportunity to meet and talk with for a few minutes. I can't express enough how much I admire his work, and will follow his advice to 'just keep shooting' as if it were scripture.

And this is how the completed installation looks, 270 images strong. It'll be on display until March 17th, at which point the images will be available for free for whomever would like to claim one.

As ever, the completed set can viewed here. Yes, I know the numbering is off. Don't judge me.

And finally, thanks to Gapers Block, for featuring the project on their web site and not editing out the line referring to Dick Van Dyke.
