Another Folsom Street Fair has come and gone. Funny how it becomes this weird time marker for me. I think it has to do with the fact that it was the first street fair I ever went to when I moved to San Francisco. In large part, I think the whole event is super ridiculous, BUT I would be super sad if it ever ceased to exist.
Every year, I basically hang out in the same spot, Dore Alley beside the Powerhouse. Over time, I’ve started recognizing the same group of individuals who linger around that area too: nudists, cocksuckers, and piss pigs. Guys that I have numerous photos of, it's like I’m their personal documentarian from event to event.
Within that environment of excessive sexual behavior, strutting, and chest pounding (so to speak), there occasionally exists moments that are so plain and ordinary that they stick out like a good pair of shoes. It’s because of those moments that I love going to Folsom Street Fair so much. It's those moments I love capturing.
