Dear God, Could I Puh-lease Have Just One More Wall To Hang Art?

April 6, 2010

While in Omaha a few weeks ago, I was completely transfixed by a photo in my besties’ living room by Bill Sitzmann. Every time I glanced at the quasi-scandalous piece, some new juicy detail popped out. This shutterbug spent his childhood traveling from place to place, until he finally took roots in my hometown.  His career began at age 17 when he was recognized in the “Utah State Art Show” for his hyper real depiction of his best pal eating two rainbow trout.  By the time he was 21, he was published in Time Magazine, and at age 25 he landed his first national cover.  Now he specializes in shooting rockstars in surreal, exotic settings that play with our idea of ordinary.  He’s racked up a list of clients (and rightfully so) including Warner Brothers Records, Time, SOMA, and RCA Records.
