Fair People | April 19
In the far corner of California, surrounded by redwood forests on three sides and the Pacific ocean on the other, the first weekend of each August brings a small rural community together in a celebration called the Del Norte County Fair. Here are some of the sights and the faces of that fair, collected over several years, and presented with appreciation for the wide variety of personalities that make small-town fairs such a remarkable prism with which to view the full spectrum of the human condition. John Tynes is a physician who can’t resist his artistic bent, or an artist addicted to the scientific method, depending on which day of the week you catch him. He has been photographing people and places for more than thirty years, and feels like he’s just now starting to get the hang of it. This event will take place on April 19 from 6pm to 9pm at 1486 Dorchester Ave.
