Chicago Magazine-Puppet Person

The July opener in Chicago Magazine is a portrait I made of Blair Thomas, puppeteer extraordinaire. We shot many set ups, but I liked this one best of Blair and his friend up on the Metra tracks near his west side studio.

As trains whizzed past we shot Blair, in and out of character. It was really fun because I got a private performance from this originator of Chicago's Redmoon Theater Company. Blair is now on his own with Blair Thomas & Co performing original works around the country.
