2019 South Carolina State Fair Photography in Columbia, SC

October 19, 2019

The South Carolina State Fair is 150 years old.  I made my first visit to this event sometime in the mid-1980's packed in the back of a truck full of high school classmates that traveled an hour to Columbia.  It hasn't changed so much since then.  The fair remains a popular event and achieved record attendance this year. I visit annually because I enjoy photographing people and it's an opportunity for me to find so many congregated together in a unique and fun environment. I even had requests from attendees for spontaneous portraits.  Here are a few of my favorite images.
