The Third World Tarot Congress Banquet
A Pictorial Review

During the weekend of May 10 - 12, 2002, I had the extreme pleasure of attending the third World Tarot Congress in Lincolnwood, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago). The pictures shown here were taken during the Saturday night banquet, in which the attendees were encouraged to come dressed as their favorite tarot card. Thanks to all the WTC members who were kind enough to allow me to capture them "in the moment" and share those moments here.
