I began this Halloween photography project in 2014 as an ethnographic study of this holiday. Since I am a photographer, I documented this tradition as I know best – in a stylized and dignified manner that will make people take notice of the subjects I shoot. In order to do this, I use a monolight and foldable backdrop, a sort of portable studio. This allows me to take away the distracting backgrounds in certain circumstances. I bring two lighting assistants to help me with my equipment and in order to ensure the safety of those around me. So far, I have photographed people in their Halloween costumes in New York City, Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami. Where should I go next year?
