Barbara Crane, Project Description: Taste of Chicago, June 23-July 4, 2000
I photograph during Taste of Chicago because of the vast cross-section of people attending Chicago's biggest festival. I need jubilant and densely packed crowds because it lets me photograph with the camera very close to people. The results are a picture that has every inch of the picture area filled with layers of people and parts of their bodies. This in turn creates excitement and chaos in a deliberatly chosen yet random way.
