The cow of the Barricades By Raja rao. Raja Rao was born in in Hassan in Mysore. He was educated in Muslim schools and later on in Aligarh Muslim University.
At 8th Street, one block north of Faulkner Color Lab, traffic barricades blocked all cars; we parked and walked toward the lab. And as we got to Folsom Street, we saw an astonishing scene of a sort that neither of us had ever encountered before.
There was what seemed to be thousands of people, many in elaborate costumes and makeup, and some totally or nearly naked in sandals. Here were men and women though precise gender was, with some, not easy to determine taking part in a theatrical world of countless fantasies.
As many aspeople gather to see and be seen by their friends and peers, showing off, as we later learned, makeup and outfits that many had spent months creating. There were at least as many onlookers as there were participants, the spectators and the enthusiastic revelers clearly a match made in heaven.
Like other onlookers, I watched, amazed. I am blessed though sometimes it can be almost a cursewith an insatiable curiosity about people. In all sorts of situations, I find myself wanting to know everything.
Seeing what I saw on Folsom Street that Sunday was enough for me to commit to a serious photographic exploration. We asked them to tell us their age and occupation; we asked what the Folsom Street Fair meant to them; we asked them to discuss their relationships and their lives beyond Folsom Street.
The information contained in the questionnaires gives a deeper dimension to the portraits, our attempt to get beyond the very dramatic surface the participants present to the congenial world of the Fair.
I am a photographer, not an anthropologist, and my primary interest is in making images that reveal things in ways not seen before. The Folsom Street Fair assembles a demimonde at least as remarkable and irresistible to the curious eye as any gathering of humans, anywhere.
For me, the joy is in the journey. Available now for order on Amazon using this link: KINK The entire book can be viewed here:The cow of the Barricades. By Raja rao. About Raja Rao.
