Renaissance Faire, near LA - 1992
Size: 60 cm x 89 cm (23 x 35 inches)
Every year, just outside Los Angeles, there is an enormous event called the Renaissance Faire. There are hundreds of stalls and events relating to England in the middle ages, featuring jousting, jugglers, musicians and hearty food and drink that they assumed were consumed during those days. All the performers and stall holders at the faire wear “medieval” clothing, as do a large number of the hundreds of thousands of the public that visit the event during it’s three month stay. In this image there were really only five people.
