[Joe Clark and Ron Unternahrer Toss Up a Target Egg for Slingshot Milligan]

Description: Photograph of Joe Clark and Ron Unternahrer tossing up a target egg for Slingshot Milligan to shoot. In the image both men are wearing towels around their necks from the splattered egg matter. The two men are practicing the height of the egg being tossed in the air for the photograph they are making where Milligan shoots the egg with a Milligan Special slingshot. Narrative by Junebug Clark: This is truly a behind the scenes or a how it was done photo. At 25 paces that egg is a pretty small moving target to hit. To add to the difficulty the object was also to miss the photographer, the assistant and also the camera which is directly behind the trajectory of the egg and in the path of the stainless steel ball bearing used for target shooting.

[Slingshot John Milligan Scrambling an Egg - Almost Gone]

Description: Photograph of an egg in mid-explosion from a slingshot ball. In the image John Milligan stands in the background holding the slingshot in position while the exploded egg takes up the foreground of the image showing crisp detail of the shattered object. Narrative by Junebug Clark: In this photo the "scrambled egg" has almost completely exploded itself out of the picture frame. "There is kind of a beauty to each fraction of a second that the slingshot ball hits and makes its way through the target." All of these photos were made with a 4x5 camera which meant that you had just one shot. What you shot was what you got. Then it was time to reload and try again. Timing was critical. You never really knew what you had until hours later when the film was processed and you could look at the negatives being pulled out of the fixer and into the wash.

[Slingshot Ball Impacting Egg]

Description: Photograph of an egg upon impact from a slingshot ball being shot by John Milligan. In the image the ball can be seen just hitting the shell and a small amount of the liquid from the egg is spewing out. Narrative by Junebug Clark: This photo was often referred to as "A Near Miss."
