Photographic exhibition
Created by Mark Alan Francis
The images in Mark Alan Francis' three-year-long odyssey into Americas fascination with eclectic festivals reveal another side of ritual: in a word, fun! Mud-slathering, tiara-wearing, omelette-making, mullet-tossing fun. Amid the stressors of contemporary American life, these rituals serve to reassure us, unite us ,provide a touchstone along our often uncertain path. Rituals give us something to look forward to, events to plan, food to make, costumes to design. "Rituals" captures what is uniquely American about our diverse country: our optimism in the face of adversity.
