The Recent "Flap" In Council Chambers
Update: Maxigumee has requested that Buffalo Rising temporarily remove his slide show. If and when the artist gives the signal to re-post his works, BRO will most certainly oblidge.
Regular readers of BRO know that Maxigumee is a great shooter (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). In addition to his gift, his bootstrap approach is pretty inspiring. He comes up with an idea, grabs a bunch of friends, secures a location (by any means necessary), then art directs and shoots work that rivals that of photographers twice his age.
This is a something he'd been think of for a while. When Jill became available, he grabbed Katie, Angela, and Shannon to do a i1920's/1930's flapper-esquei shoot in City Hall and Common Council chambers.
The results are pretty stunningo, tylie, mature, well composed. And the juxtaposition of fashion/style photography with his choice of location gives the pictures an amusing and subtle editorial weight.
