New Project "American Pawn" ?
A couple weeks ago I had a 2 day editorial shoot for a BIG Magazine, my feature got bumped due to Kennedy's passing away and the story is on hold ( what a bummer ). The story had a lot of substance about what is going on in America today, and so it got me thinking ........... I pass this Pawn shop on Wilmington street called "American Pawn" I thought it'd be interesting to photograph real people who are buying and selling stuff. I think it says a lot about the economy and what people are going through theses days. I did some test shots, my problem is the direct screaming sunshine coming straight onto the subjects. I'm trying to do this in my spare time and don't have time to fly in a 20x20. I'm not sure what I'm going to do ????? I think I'm more in love with the concept and title "American Pawn" than the execution so far.
