Artist Statement:
Fantasy Fest is an annual week-long celebration in Key West, Florida in it’s 32nd year. It culminates in a parade at the end of the week, when Duval Street is filled with people in various costumes and states of undress. It is a street party filled with the fantasies of free spirits.
On October 26th, 2013, my cousin and I drove to Key West from his home in West Palm Beach. We were visiting a friend, and our visit began in the middle of the parade day.  We walked up and down Duval Street. I was amazed and kept shooting my camera.  That evening we watched the two hour parade, which demanded more photographs.
This exhibit is a result of that day. Jason Miller, curator of the show, insisted that I show these images because they are so different from what I usually shoot- swamps and river floods. I’m glad to be showing this work- with thanks to Jason and his inspired efforts in putting this show together.
The Shadow Surfing images grew out of my love for the ocean, and the play of light in West Palm Beach.

Enjoy the show!
