"India" by Michael CogIiantry

You may know him from his Furry Kama Sutra project but in 2007 Michael is debuting "India". Known as Team Good Korma (a pun on the word that means curry), the threesome—local art director Anthony Munoz, photographer Michael Cogliantry and cinematographer Adam Sternin embarked on the Rickshaw Run, a two-week, 2,200-mile race from Cochin to Darjeeling on two automated rickshaws purchased with $2,700 the three raised to benefit Mercy Corps, a charity in Darjeeling. I was at the opening in Chicago and was blown away by his captivating images and his comedic narrative style. Michaels newest project can be seen at the Country Club Gallery (they have a pink stove there!) in Wicker Park. Check out the blog!
