What do Fantasy & Science Fiction fans look like? I went to Worldcon 09 and photographed one hundred and twenty-one of them and I still think it's one of the best things I've done. Introduction by 7 time Hugo award winner Michael Swanwick.

I remember when you initially posted some of this. I think this is the first time I've seen the whole thing in one place. I've been attending cons off and on for 30 years--you did a great job of capturing a slice of the community.

So many familiar faces. I remember watching you take some of these.

Thanks. They are wonderful.

I wish you could do this at the cons I go to. They are great portraits & I recognise a few people (who must travel to UK cons).

This was a major inspiration to my WisCon photobooths:


Wiscon 34: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjqKm33X

Wiscon 35: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjuPW1Rr

Wiscon 36: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjAiUDas

If I ever go back to Wiscon, I'll do it again. It was fun.

Oh wow, my hair is so short in that photo! And my son of the red hair just appears to be transfixed. We are older now of course (and we are three instead of two), but we still seem to be in the habit of posing for fannish photos... http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2013/12/australia-news.html
