Bay Area-based photographer Tex Allen began the Why the Nose? project simply to share the fun and joy of wearing a red foam clown nose. The website shows photographs of people from all walks of life wearing a clown nose and encourages participation.
It’s really that simple. In a world filled with distractions and distrust, you’d be amazed at how many people (of all ages) have lost a sense of innocence. Or maybe you wouldn’t…
Wearing a clown nose is fun, it’s childlike, it’s easy and it’s free (if you already have the nose).
