Prequel to the Sequel

Cotton Club

Posted in Editorial by brmeyer3 on 02/23/2010

This past weekend was the annual Cotton Club event, which is for black history month I think. Usually every year the police have to be called in and shut down the event because the crowd gets a little bit out of control. I was excited to shoot this hoping I could come away with a good photo of something exciting happening. My assignment sheet said Friday night, which turned out to be a fashion show for the event, and it was a total snooze fest. It was pretty boring and the crowd was walking out on it. It turns out the actual event was Saturday night, but still nothing exciting ( like a riot or arrests) were made.
