Company Photo Session
Company Photo Session - This Another Language Performing Arts Company photo session with Christopher Pfeiffer took place on the Salt Flats of the Great Salt Lake on May 16th, 1993. Since it was spring, much of the Salt Flats area was flooded. Being flexible, the Company worked with what they had, which at times, meant going into the water. It was a creative, and fun experience. The Salt Flats are a very unusual and surreal environment, many of these photos have a bleached-bypass and impressionistic quality, depicting the artistic experience of that day.
Brochure - 1993's season brochure was created using both digital and photocopying techniques. The main image on the cover was photocopied and the rest was designed in MacPaint.
