somebody get jason berry on the phone...

who is eric roman?
what is the story of eric roman?

honestly... I do not know the answers
but I am certain that these questions would make for an interesting story
perhaps a documentary film
somebody get jason berry on the phone

the story of eric roman continues to write itself

a legend on the streets of dc as a messenger
a mid-altlantic single speed pioneer
and of course there is more
more than just a man standing in a french maid's dress with a can of black label and a timbuk2 bag over his shoulder

maybe somebody needs to get to work on this...

gwadzilla said...

yes...
eric is skinny
wiry in an efficient sort of way
sort of like yourself

the photos...
there was a wide variety of stuff
the show included all sorts of stuff

there was a cycling theme book that I only glanced at for a minute before running out the door
it was heavily cycling themed

good stuff
there was some double exposure stuff that entertained my eye
