A series of eleven images photographed around San Antonio, Elmendorf, and Aransas Pass, Texas.
During six yearly opening periods Texas fireworks stalls are full of colorfully wrapped and boxed pyrotechnic devices, themselves full of color, energy, and sounds when ignited. Between permitted opening periods the stalls are monochromatic, inert, and silent.
The possession of fireworks is legal in the state of Texas and they can be used year-round. However, the sale of fireworks is limited to six periods each year and dependent on drought conditions and local City and County regulations. Many large Cities do not permit the sale or use of fireworks within City limits.
Firework Stalls is an archival museum box collection of pigment prints on mold-made cotton rag art paper.
