1983: Weather Forecaster Auditionees

‘In 1983, a local TV station held a contest for anyone who wanted a chance at reporting the weather. My role was to take head shots of contestants after each screen test. Five winners were chosen out of nearly one hundred applicants. The pictures were never used, but I developed the negatives anyway (without proofing them). These images had been lost until recently and I am seeing them for the very first time.’

    Makes me wonder if any of these people were the winners. Great shots! I love how candid they are. No posing, just a click.
