DJ as Lady Liberty (via  ericarhiannon ) 
 The Ypsi Project was put on hold for a few days because I was out of town. Now I’m back and happy that the weather is warming up! I’m planning on doubling up on images for 5 days to make up for the ones that I’ve missed.  There have been several occasions that I intended to photograph Lady Liberty that stands on the corner of Michigan Ave. and Huron St. and they all failed for various reasons. Today I was able to catch up with her…er…him? I approached and asked if I could take some photos and the voice inside agreed. I then asked if the Lady Liberty head could be removed so I could photograph the person inside and the voice said no.The voice did however tell me his name and it was DJ. Then he made a witty compromise and removed the Lady Liberty head without revealing his face.   I hope   Liberty Tax Service  pays DJ extra during extreme weather conditions.
