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.
