I never did know if the selective hand coloring on this image was Mike Rider’s suggestion or that Robby Aceto was pinched for time when he did the work.  I do know that when he was doing these for American Demographics he was also very active as a touring musician.  He has worked a lot with  guitarist David Torn and quite a bit with David Sylvian.  When I saw Robby recently he talked about doing a gig in New York City and then coming back to his hotel room to work on photos for the magazine.  It is always possible that he just ran out of time before this issue went to press.  I look at this and imagine the sky being blue and the grass green, but the more I look at it, the more I like the fact that only the banners are colored.

The exhibit opens up in about a month.  I am really looking forward to it.
