Open Walls Baltimore With Jetsonorama From Arizona

By - Friday, May 25th, 2012

Martha Cooper continued her coverage by documenting the work and process of Chip Thomas aka Jetsonorama, a physician/photographer who has lived and worked on the Navajo Nation in Arizona for 25 years. Since 2009, he’s wheatpasted his portraits, vintage and recent, of his Native American neighbors. In Baltimore Chip had several projects, big and small, all going at once. First he had to go out and shoot the photos he wanted to paste, get them printed and meticulously cut them out. Most challenging was a huge portrait of pigeon flyer, Tony Divers to be installed on a wall near his home. The paste failed to stick to wall #1 so Chip had to reprint the photo and extend his stay a week. Meanwhile he and Baltimore artist Nanook pasted up versions of a photo I had taken as part of my ongoing SoWeBo documentation.
