The Richard Show

Often, when I have a camera aimed in his general direction, my friend Richard Ray adopts a pose or concept. It's very much like a slice of performance art or a momentary lapse of reason. It is for the camera, and like a photo exposure, it's gone in a fraction of a second.

This is not performance. This was the real Richard Ray at rest before he lost 40 pounds, which inspired me to lose 40 pounds. There are more Richard Images. I'll add them as I find them, or as we create them. —JRC
