Red Pants Project

Christopher Schneider's avatar Christopher Schneider

Obsessions are not logical, although they can be curious, creepy and sometimes even dangerous. For ten years I have been photographing people in red pants. The red pants wearers never know they are being photographed. I follow them and take pictures in stealth. I now have over 700 images in this project. It doesn't matter who is wearing them-- male or female, young or old, stranger or friend. It is an obsession that may never come to an end. Each image is a 4"x6" individually mounted digital print. This highly interactive piece is often compared to a bizarre "Where's Waldo?" and includes images from all over the US plus four countries. It even has a few celebrities for people to seek out.
