The current cast of Esther's Follies.
Humor. Magic. Political Commentary. Beer. Mexican food. Brilliant acting. Austin Weird Fun.
If you were coming to Austin to try and find some of those old Austin traditions that helped create our city's unofficial motto: Keep Austin Weird I'd make one of your first stops Esther's Follies on East Sixth Street. The building is covered with amazing mural art by Kerry Awn and others. The interior is all old Austin. It's amazing fun.
I've been photographing for the folks at Esther's for well over a decade and it always seems like we're just getting warmed up. This is from our January 2019 shoot, last week. Three big lights in umbrellas and a fast shutter. All fun all the time.
At the end of every photo shoot at Esther's Follies they toss everyone together for a cast and crew shot.
