OBSESSIONS: PORTRAIT OF THE DAY

.

Photography and Text by Tony Ward

I met Bill in the early nineties while he was an art director for a large Philadelphia advertising agency.  We worked on a number of creative projects together over the years as I was heavily involved in studio photography at the time, while servicing a variety of Fortune 500 clients.  Bill and I became friends and often socialized together. At the time of this picture he was dating a beautiful African American woman who I first spotted while riding on the back of Bill’s motorcycle on the streets of Philadelphia.  When I met her; I explained that I was embarking on a series of photographs based on the nude and the erotic in photography.  This marked the beginning of the Obsessions period. It was the Spring of 1993.
