R.I.P Mr. Barnes
I was saddened yesterday to read on Facebook of the passing of Chicago photographer Scott Barnes. Scott led a creative life and generously shared so much of his work with FH. Between 2009 and 2013 I featured Scott's work close a dozen times and loved so many of his images, especially Scott's 'drifter series'.
Many of you may also recognize or have seen the shot above.. Scott describes the image of the hottie in the doorway as not necessarily his favorite shot, but the image he saw copied and tumbled around on the net more than any other image he had shot. At just 50, Scott had a lot of creating still to do. Rest in colorful peace!
