I went to a pre-opening party at the Stanek Gallery last Thursday. It was for a group showing of Philadelphia artists, including Kyle Cassidy. That's him up above, posing before one of the photos from his book Armed America. He tells me that the dog in the foreground with the anxious look on his face actually wanted to leap up on him. So he'd line up the shot, get the dog down and in place, and then would have a window of one full second before the dog leaped up on him again.
Ah, the glamorous life of an artist!
