About Bob Debris
Greets to you, gentle reader, this here is the "about page", and I thought you might want to know the answer to that eternal question, "just what is it, that floats your boat, bob debris? so here goes... I'd have to say theres a definite attraction to various social groups, to folks totally immersed in their chosen passion. were talking obsession and exclusivity, all tied up with a curious regalia and theatricality.
The list includes but is not limited to : burlesque performers, Mexican wrestlers, woman's roller derby, Christian passion play performers, celebrity impersonators, U.F.O. enthusiasts, historical war re-enactors, circus performers, ventriloquists, furries and twins...
of course on the way to shoot these events there are constant detours. the mobile monuments and doomed theme parks, souvenir shops and funky signage, programmatic architecture, miniature golf courses and folk art installations It all adds up to tremendous roadside distractions.
I do shoot the occasional portrait and am hired by event co-ordinators to create tableaus using drops, props and costumes.
i have been exhibiting publicly for over thirty years. my work can be seen in numerous public and private collections in Canada and the USA
