One of Vegas Bright’s favorite guest writers, Scott Klapman, returns with photo-series regarding a subject we’ve all wondered… Who the hell is behind the masks of all the characters under the Fremont Street Experience canopy?
This is an interesting project as not everyone jumps at the prospect of a $5 tip. I wonder if there could have been some language disconnect in my request to remove their mask. Some asked to be photographed off the path, others didn’t want their identity revealed at all. Maybe they were being true to the character or maybe they were hiding from the law.
After a couple of characters, I felt like I was “collecting” them. Like, I hope I can find a Cookie Monster or a Minnie Mouse. I will definitely set aside more dedicated time on my next trip to further this project with more characters and improved shots.
