I'm not sure what to tell you about this photo I snapped yesterday, other than the French paleontologist makes it tangentially related to the Gem and Mineral Show and it's part of an upcoming feature story.
ETA: My apologies for not mentioning this sooner, but the mastermind behind the shot was Eric Kroll, a photographer of some renown. TW will have a profile of Kroll in an upcoming issue. As Eric notes below, the violinist is Robert Villa and the woman doing the handstand is Katelynn Charron of Boston, who is visiting Tucson to assist the fossil man, Serge Jnoun.
You can read more about the shoot at Eric's blog, including the tidbit that the shoot came to a premature end when we got busted by The Man.
