1994    Night at the Ball


This series was about the San Francisco Black and White Ball, a yearly grand city-wide gala of celebrations and black tie events.  Photographed for the city magazine San Francisco Focus, I depicted a man desperately and awkwardly seeking a date.


I had planned to shoot this assignment on the streets of San Francisco but when we landed it was raining, so we quickly improvised and shot it late at night at the hotel where we were staying, the Ritz Carlton.
