Not Your Everyday State Fair Photos
In August (which, for the record, feels like one million years ago) I was given the opportunity to write about photographer Leonard Volk.
Quick rundown: Highland Park native. 84 years old. Published a book of photographs and essays titled everyday that’s anything but ordinary.
The gist of that long-ago article? Volk doesn’t just look at things. He sees them. And usually, it’s in a different way than others do. For proof, check out these recent photos of the fair his daughter-turned-publicist Alison just sent my way.

I mean, who takes a picture of the back of Big Tex, or of his hand stretched out as if he’s about to capture a butterfly? Answer: Leonard Volk. How very everyday of him.
