The title of this current body of work alludes to notions of fun, the absurd and the timeless, never-ending levity of the county fair.  Rides, lights, food – everyone waits for this yearly extravaganza.  Yet, there’s always a hint of an underlying sadness.  Perhaps it’s because it only lasts a short time, or maybe it’s the often times curious characters that run the midway and concessions.   The photographs in this exhibition form part of a much larger photographic series taken at county and state fairs exploring the differences and similarities among people and their local sociological personalities.
