Among them were Access Services and CARE, the Accessibility Unit of Metro’s Office of Civil Rights, the Rider Relief Transportation Program, LADOT, Metrolink, Foothill Transit, Big Blue Bus, Bolt Bus, Long Beach Transit, Amtrak and Pasadena Transit.

Music student and photographer Conor Nickerson had this thought while flipping through old pictures of himself from the late 1990s and early 2000s.
I started this series when I was a photography student at Mesa Community College in Arizona.
I thought it would be a fun costume to dress up in a suit, wear a fedora with a card labeled “PRESS,” then run around with an old camera, photographing other people in their costumes and using real film.
Calling his series , the project required costume changes and photo manipulation.Usually, I set the camera at a certain distance and let my subjects walk into range.My favorite image is of the three stormtroopers in matching “PUMP! But I will always love the shots that were candid, that I took on a fly.I find it almost disturbing how real they look, like seeing a ghost or something.” Nickerson replied, “Editing the pictures and looking at them so closely for so long takes a bit away from the shock value, but seeing the final images all together definitely is a bit strange!Every year on Halloween — when the trick-or-treating is over and the children are tucked warmly into their beds — that's when the real party starts.
