There's nearly always a back story that saves you from ridicule once photos of you wearing tacky Halloween costumes surface yet again. For example, you can explain that your dying grandmother sent the Casper suit, so you just had to wear it. Famed Austin photographer Michael O'Brien has a collection called Halloween Night: Garage Portraits consisting of local kids photographed in their costumes over a couple of years. Years later, he interviewed the kids and their comments make up the accompanying text. See what they had to say through November 24 at Photographs Do Not Bend, 1202 Dragon St. Call 214-969-1852 or visit pdnbgallery.com.
