Saj Crone's Artist Statement

Fantasy Fest–Key West 
And Shadow Surfing 

Fantasy Fest is an annual week-long celebration in Key West, Florida in it’s 32nd year. It culminates in a parade at the end of the week, when Duval Street is filled with people in various costumes and states of undress. It is a street party filled with the fantasies of free spirits.

October 26th, 2013, my cousin and I drove to Key West from his home in West Palm Beach. We were visiting a friend, and our visit began in the middle of the parade day. We walked up and down Duval Street. I was amazed and kept shooting my camera. That evening we watched the two hour parade, which demanded more photographs.

This exhibit is a result of that day. Jason Miller, curator of the show, insisted that I show these images because they are so different from what I usually shoot- swamps and river floods. I’m glad to be showing this work- with thanks to Jason and his inspired efforts in putting this show together.

The Shadow Surfing images grew out of my love for the ocean , and the play of light in West Palm Beach.

Enjoy the show!

Curator, Jason Miller, has urged Saj Crone to take a detour from her eloquent and more conservative landscape photographs in order to explore her wild side of image making. The result in this exploratory visit to Key West, Florida is a body of fifty images post editorial selections process, which will be on view at Gasoline (art gallery). Saj has a lot of fun in her life and while on her various adventures... This exhibition is all about letting the hair down and having a good time!
