• Body Art— I find it fascinating, distasteful, scary, beautiful and intriguing. On my way to an assignment I saw a freeway sign that read "Body Art Expo" at the LA Convention Center so I decided to go check it out the next day.

    Usually I would drive to such an event. This time I decided to take a two-hour bus ride to downtown and walk a couple of blocks with my camera equipment. This alone put me in a different mood. The moment I entered the Convention Center I was in a world filled with buzzing tattoo machines. people showing off their body art, and voyeurs like myself.
