17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A Competing Company Latex Mask, Chemical Side Effects

A local company in Kalamazoo Michigan hand makes quality masks to wear for special occassions. They purchased a competitors mask and displayed it on this styrofoam head. The foreign mask had some sort of chemical reaction with the styrofoam and it ate away at the surface of the head. Begging the question, what sort of side effects are we willing to risk for the almighty dollar? The ultimate American experience.
