When someone comes to my studio wheeling in a coffin-shaped bed of nails, it peaks my interest. I photographed Jonathon Bryce, who is a local escape artist to be part of the "Unique" series. Typically, when he lays on the nails he keeps his shirt on...I asked him to do with it off and he agreed...thought it would be more dramatic. Some crazy stuff.
As part of a fund-raiser, On October 24th, he will be attempting to break a world record by escaping from a straight jacket as many times as possible in an 8 hr period. He thinks he might be able to do it 40 times.
