Forgotten History


Meet Birmingham photographer Brian Francis.  Brian has been a commercial photographer in town with an impressive list of clients for the last 10years.  Currently a collection his (wacky) portraits are hanging at the Bottletree Bar and Café.  The photographs are great fun in their own right, but Brian's childhood friend Tom Bagby has written an a little story to go with each one. The collection is titled Forgotten History, A Collection of 20th Century Photographs Representing Those Who Failed to Make the Cut.  I decided that Brian was way too much fun to have him just pose in front of his work. I waited till he wasn't watching and caught this one.
