Here is a collection of photos shot by KJ Heath for Chicago organization TPAN (Test Positive Aware Network), a peer led support for individuals dealing with HIV. TPAN holds an event in which local bars get one of their bartenders to participate in an on-line strip-a-thon. As people donate online to the charity, the clothes come off. There were 12 bars in Chicago that participated and KJ shot all the bartenders. The event runs the whole month of November. For more info, visist www.Barlesque.org.
I'm a morning person myself, so these photos from KJ Heath really brightened my day. Says the photographer of his time with model Michael Hargis:
"While most of my work is shot in studio with lights and strobes, I love nothing better than morning light streaming through a window. There is a simplicity and purity there that is very inspirational to me. Michael Hargis and I got up very early one morning a few weeks ago to take these shots and I hope you love them."
