THE FACE OF THE MARKET
My 2013 book REGULAR CUSTOMER contains nearly 300 photographs of Seattle’s downtown farmers’ market taken over 50 years — from 1963 to 2013. The metaphor for the book was a stroll through the Market looking both at how it is today and how it looked before. Of course there were people in these photographs — what fun would the Market be without people? However, the emphasis was on the place and the people — customers, tourists, vendors, (me) — in the environment. This project is a revisiting of my negatives from the Market that emphasize the faces of the people I saw there — a lot of them over many years. Some I knew by name and regarded as friends, others only by sight, a few that I only saw once.
