Department Rhapsody

A coworker is retiring this week, so my department decided we wanted a memorable group photo to give to her. The challenge for me: do it in the style of the classic Bohemian Rhapsody cover.


I set up the shoot and took this photo of us about three weeks ago. My direction to them was to dress in black and be defiant like a 70s rock band. And I had my boss flare our her fingers.


We gave the finished photo to our retiring coworker today -- as a blanket! When she's cold, she will have her former coworkers, as cold as we appear, to warm her up.


(By the way, part of the joke here is that these are nothing like our true personalities. In fact, one person at the retirement party said she didn't recognize three of us.)
