I was recently asked to photograph a special art installation by First Friday Las Vegas. The event, which is part of the Downtown Project, attracts 20,000 people months. I was asked to photograph a live painting demonstration. There were six stations setup and each stain featured two artists working on two different canvases. Each station, called a "guerrilla cage," would later be displayed in different areas throughout the city. My job was to document the entire process. It was a real pleasure to watch so many great artists' visions come to fruition.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
