From the editor:
October in Tulsa means a lot of things: a certain welcome crispness in the air, that hint of color creeping into the leaves, the sudden longing to be outside. Then of course there is that other thing, the big event we love, we love to hate, we hate that we secretly love; that’s right, it’s fair season.
This year Rachel Kelso, a local photographer, took her beloved October pilgrimage with a unique goal in mind. She’d document the fair with her lens, as she always did, but this year with a unique twist: she’d use selections from her collection of vintage & toy cameras (in this case the Diana Mini and the Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim). The results are, like this season and the beloved fair, just a little bit magical.
The Tulsa State Fair continues through October 10th.
