      Bill Ellis's Weird New York

      September 13, 2013

      Bill Ellis recently moved to New York City from the depths of Florida, which is generally regarded as the strangest, most violent state in the union. To be sure, there's a ton of odd stuff going on down there in America's wang, but as Bill's photos document, NYC is equally chock-full of the ugly, the beautiful, and the depraved—people are just used to ignoring it here. Bill is the type of dude to walk his ferret in the nude or shave his own name into his head so he can photograph himself and slap the image on his business card. If you see him on the street, say hi. He'll be the one with "BILL ELLIS!!" shaved into his head.
