Why can’t we all just get along?

Photo for artist Tony Tasset


This was a project I shot and retouched for the artist Tony Tasset. Dangling out of a crane on a windy day with a digital Hassleblad above 26 grad students in animal costumes, there was little time to get the shot right before it began raining. Retouching this image was critical as the field had very little grass, and the final print was larger than poster size at 48″ x 48″. It might have been easier to construct this image in a studio with controlled light, but knowing it was a real event is part of the joy of the piece.
