Several weeks ago, while sitting in my living room and staring at my decks, I wondered if anyone had ever tried to create a "living" Tarot and if so, what it would look like. So, I decided to create the project and throw myself in, no matter what.
The first photo shoot was in Overton Park in Memphis, Tennessee. Although I had posted the event on Facebook, I was not sure just how many people would actually show up. Well, the number that did show up was astounding and I was grateful to see each and every one of their faces. Two and a half hours later, I had taken over 800 photographs and I buzzed beyond comprehension.
Rather than just show all of the photos, I was advised by my friend, and also The Devil card, Allan Gilbreath, to present them one blog post at a time.
So, without further ado, may I present to you The Living Tarot!
Let's begin this strange trip with THE FOOL. According to the Tarot, The Fool represents the beginning of a journey; innocent or young person; folly; acting without thought.
