Katy Granna’s striking new street photography series Boulvard for exhibit The Happy Ever After features those “who celebrate delusion as a means of self-preservation,” as the press release mercilessly describes them.

It all seems a bit sweeter than that, somehow. See wandering strangers of West Hollywood and San Francisco streets caught in the spotlight of theatrically harsh sunlight, along with a three channel video of the photographer’s familiars, “street performers, celebrity impersonators, and mercurial pretenders” of Hollywood, San Francisco and Vegas at Salon 94. “Happy Ever After,” Katy Grannan, Apr 1 – May 4 for Believers, Apr 1 – May 14 for Boulevard, Salon 94 Bowery, NYC
