Aaron Fein’s White Flags at Vassar College :: Poughkeepsie NY Photographer

A year ago, I was contacted by Aaron Fein, a fellow Vassar Alum.  He told me he was bringing an art installation to Vassar, and wondered if I would be interested in photographing them for him.

In Aaron’s words, this is how he describes his work:

The idea of an entire world comprised of white flags began in the months following 9/11, as I observed how all the American flags bumper stickers – our symbol of permanence and comfort after the attacks – began to lose their color in a slow, but inevitable fade to white. I wondered whimsically with a tinge of grief, if more than just the differences in our flags could fade away, ultimately rendering a more united world.

Being a fellow graduate of Vassar College, I agreed, and this week he came up from South Carolina and we met in person for the first time.  He was truly an inspiration, and I loved the challenge of capturing both is passion and the energy of the flags in photographs.  So, without further ado…
