Portrait session with Dwid, Richmond, Virginia. April, 2017.


Dwid Hellion, frontman for legendary hardcore / metal band Integrity, recently sat for a portrait during my U-haul sessions outside of the United Blood hardcore and punk festival in Richmond, Virginia.  I have listened to Integrity for the better part of the last 20 years and it was a real treat to get a few minutes to talk with Dwid and make his portrait.

I was surprised by how approachable Dwid was and appreciate his trusting me with his portrait – he was generous with his time and seemed genuinely interested in the project.  I look forward to catching up and delivering a print from the sitting some time soon!

Here’s another from Dwid’s sitting – I couldn’t decide between the two and wanted to share them both.


I can’t wait to share more of the portraits from the weekend – please stay tuned in the weeks to come!  Until then…
