The photos in this book were taken at the 2008 and 2009 High Heel Races in the Dupont Circle neighborhood of Washington, DC.
This annual Halloween event has become a must-see for all Washingtonians. Even the freezing temperatures in 2008 and the rain of 2009 couldn't keep the over-flowing crowds from attending the races.
While it is obvious that the drag queens are the major draw, it only takes some playful creativity to join in on the party.
The race itself is a footnote for the evening, taking second place to a celebration of life and community.
I am a photographer working in the Washington, DC Metro area working in Advertising, Aerial, Architecture, Event, Fine Art, Sports and Travel/Nature photography. I do not consider myself an event, aerial or any other type of photographer. I am simpy...a photographer. I cannot limit myself to any one area of photography. My work has been used in various publications including The Washington Post and the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum magazine. To see more of my work please visit my website: www.csjphoto.com
