“I’d been eating fast food all my life without thinking
about it. And the more I learned about the subject, the
more intrigued I became.” — Eric Schlosser
When Keith and I met in photography class 17 years ago I knew he was the one for me when he volunteered to be the model for my tongue-in-cheek photo shoot on the dangers of fast food. He knew exactly what he was getting into! The plan was for him to eat a ton of food from fast food restaurants and then to vomit it all up in the name of “art”. 😉
After a couple of glasses of wine to prepare for the shoot, he ate 3 cheeseburgers, 2 hot dogs, 2 black coffees, 4 orders of fries, a chocolate milkshake, 2 sodas, and a fruit pie. Needless to say, Keith didn’t need much encouragement when it came time to take the last two photos, and it was his brilliant idea to lie down in the gutter at the end.
My only regret is that I was laughing so hard that I could barely press the shutter button on the camera, so I missed out on some great post-meal action shots! What a trooper! Thanks Keith, my teacher gave me an A.
