Utata is an online photography group that publishes two large group projects a year, and for this second one, they asked us to concentrate on one object or group of objects. I had this idea in my head brewing for some time of Jeff standing in a cornfield holding an umbrella. We had to drive out to the country, and when we were in the country, my heart would sink each time we passed rows of cornstalks getting taller by the week. There was always a reason not to stop: it rained, it was fenced off in barbed wire, it was somebody’s yard, how would we explain this to the people who lived there. Finally on our trip to Bethlehem, I had Billy stop the car; Jeff threw his suit jacket over his shoulders and climbed up a muddy hill for me to get that one shot. It’s not how I pictured it would turn out, but isn’t that how most art works? I’m happy to have a man who understands my ridiculous requests (and helps make them happen).
