God gives us life. Government gives us freedom. We manifest our Pursuit of Happiness.
About 4 years ago a friend of mine suggested I got to the Keansburg, NJ boardwalk if I wanted to have fun and get some great photos at the same time. It was like a time warp to another world where you could play games to win cigarettes and simultaneously watch grownups in looney tunes apparel get drunk on the boardwalk while their kids went on rides that seemed to have negative thrill capacity. After spending a summer shooting the boardwalk I decided to broaden my vision to really show what it is that we as Americans do for fun and how these traditions get passed down. With that, Pursuit of Happiness was born and now it’s spread from just the Keansburg boardwalk to everything from drug marches, holiday parades, pet fashion shows to kkk family functions.
