Piece description from the artist
The gentleman bear dons his summer suit and rests on the fainting couch. In wars and fights, masks were not only for protecting the face but also, if made for that purpose, methods of intimidating the enemy.
Michael Glassman is a native of the great state of Kentucky, where he began studying darkroom photography at the age of fifteen. Since then, he has also honed his skills in digital photography and graphic design, but still enjoys few things more than hours spent under a safelight, smelling like developer. His photos have been called eccentric, precious and, occasionally, out of focus.
