American County Fair
With my series, American County Fair, I endeavor to capture the vibrancy and energy felt by the multitude of our nation who attend the county fair. Each year a concourse is filled with an array of events for the entire community; rides, games, spectacular performances, dancing, contests, and exhibits. These fairs last less than a month and occur across the USA. County fairs are one of America's oldest cultural traditions. Bright lights and continuous movement mesmerize all who attend, creating the fanfare and magic of the fair. I believe there is magic when experiencing the fair, because when I hand over my ticket and step foot onto the fairgrounds, I am transported from adulthood to childhood.
