I've been fascinated with sombreros ever since my friend Alan and I heard baseball announcer Harry Carray notice a fan wearing one in the stands at Wrigley Field and observe, "Now, there's a good lookin' fella!"
I've since developed two theories:
1. Everyone looks great in a sombrero.
2. Everyone looks happier than they were before they put the sombrero on.
I've decided to pursue these unproven theorems by photographing people at my work to show if, in fact, this is the case.
You can see the early research by looking at The Sombrero Project, and the resulting Sombrero Project, Part Dos.
So far, the data looks promising.
