Bag Face

We can't tell who this is, but we know they like Mickey Mouse. I think that is what makes this photo so great. The photo has an anonymous theme to it, but then on the guys shirt is one of the most recognizable images in the world. I didn't even plan for it to be like that. We were just goofing around.
I was out in Dekalb visiting my friends when they were in college out there, and I was shooting black and white film for photography class. We were just hanging out when Andy bit two holes in his beer bag and put it on his head. I think I have another shot of him watching TV with the bag on. I got look for that one.
This photo came out awesome. I laugh every time I see this.

Here is an interesting character. This is Cosmo, not the one from Seinfeld. He "has been picking up trash in these lots since the 70s". I first met this guy in Indiana at a three day Phish run a few years back. A friend and I were getting breakfast at a makeshift restaurant set up in the lot when we spotted him. He was sitting on the gravel road trying to get his lighter to work to light a good sized string of firecrackers in front of him. This was like 7 in the morning! Luckily some police officers stopped him before he could set the thing off.
Throughout the weekend my friends and I had several other interactions with Cosmo. I knew I had to get a picture of this dude. I got this one when he was lingering around the camp across from us. I didn't even notice that he was looking until I developed the film later. His stare is frightening. I would venture to guess that other people who have attended any Phish shows in the past may have run into Cosmo. If they have they would remember.
