gentlemen in bars.

The title is pretty self-explanatory, but it also speaks to a personal quirk, a certain talent to talking to gentlemen in bars that are not my local, and then having them agree to getting their photo taken.   Mike says I should do a Kickstarter campaign to get funds to travel around, chat up strangers at their local bars, and then make a photo book out of it.  I’m fairly certain my parents would be mortified.

The photos here are of some of the gents I’ve managed to photograph over the years.  I wish it hadn’t been so dark — too dark to photograph anything — in that random Irish pub in Stockholm the night I chatted with Alfred, a fellow from northern Sweden in town for an agricultural conference.  He was hilarious.   But then again, all these guys were pretty great.

    Loved the comment about your parents being mortified. Mine too, but it WOULD make an interesting book. Great photos and I enjoyed the series.

    Full of warmth. I can taste the whiskey and hear the stories. Love these!
