A recognized talent both in front of and behind the camera, Guest Artist Charles Michael Davis is making a name for himself in the art world with his distinctive “Park Menagerie" photography series. In these exclusive portrait sessions titled “Portraits of the Wild at Heart,” you can be part of the series and see what it’s like to be ‘wild at heart’ yourself.
Charles will direct and shoot your photo session, where you will be photographed in two states: unmasked and seated and then in motion while wearing your choice of his card-stock animal masks. Get ready to move as you embody the ‘wild at heart’ theme. Photos will be in black and white, so consider your wardrobe carefully. Charles suggests wearing boots for ease of movement (“no heels”) and gravitating toward any black, white, sheer, or reflective clothing. Suits are ideal. Think: “a rave in Berlin.”
No refunds or cancellations. The “Portraits of the Wild at Heart” experience is available only to Fair ticket holders.
About The Photographer:

Working as a model for renowned photographers, such as Yu Tsai, Jim Jordan, and Mark Seliger, provided Charles with invaluable knowledge, which he applied to his own artistic practice. In addition to his photography, Charles has directed television episodes and music videos and trained in piano and dance. Drawing inspiration from iconic figures, including Brigitte Lacombe, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Longo, Charles is a versatile artist who seeks to ignite conversations about the wild and untamed.
