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.
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
