For 14 years, the Kansas City Fringe Festival has brought together aspiring and established artists to create a Babel Tower of picturesque, loud, funny and uncensored art. I have been one of the festival’s many volunteer photographers for the past eight years, and I have enjoyed recording this unbelievable art scene that takes over the city for two weeks in July. I created the “Fantastic Fringe” series from some of my artists’ photos, using image manipulation to create a visual extension of their performances, as I perceive it. The images are part of the Visual Arts Exhibition at Union Station in KCMO, which runs from July 15 to July 29, 2018. Enjoy!
