The Stranger.

This picture is meant to be paired with this photo.


Such a fun photo-shoot! I love burning things! We even had a bike cop show up for this photo, which I think earned me a little bit of street-cred. Apparently having open flame in public spaces is actually illegal, I thought it would just be frowned upon, but there is an actual law prohibiting it! The cop was pretty cool though, he basically just told us that he could tell that it was for art and that next time we do something like this we should do it at our house or in another alleyway (we were in the alley directly next to the precinct, which was a pretty dumb idea!)


The title is inspired by Seattle's awesome local newspaper, "The Stranger." (We were actually burning The Seattle Times.)
