San Francisco, California.
Below are some photographs from Sunday’s Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco. Be warned that a few of these are graphic and contain either male or female nudity.
There was a lot more going on than you’ll see in these pictures, but people were exploring how open they could be. There was a bold nudity and public masturbation. I want people to keep being able to do this and not to fear someone on the Internet finding out who they are and giving them a hard time, so I’ve censored pictures that might cause problems. Enjoy, and if you like what you see consider visiting next year and making a small donation to keep the fair going.
This was all shot on a Leica M6 and Voightlander 35mm f1.4 lens on Kodak Tri-X 400 film. It worked out wonderfully, and I really enjoy using it as a camera. Rolls cost only $1-2 to develop at home and less than $5 to buy online — bringing the cost per frame to an affordable 19 cents. They were scanned using my Canon 6D and a 100mm f2.8 macro lens. It’s a long process, much better for single photos than for a series like this, but I enjoy the workflow.
