Halloween in Hollywood
Project info

These photos were shot on Halloween night, 1981 - 1985. Hollywood would erupt in this amazing parade on Halloween night. Now it's become commercial and overdone. Back then it was somehow more real. I just drifted up and down the street - stopping a person now and then to photograph. I told them it was for possible publication. I got few refusals. I shot within 3 seconds of stopping my subject, never posing them but instead trying to capture that first real pose before they changed their posture to "look good". My goal was to photograph real people caught in the act of being their true selves. I've never published the series...... Marketing has never been my strong suit.
