Anderson, a fantastic filmmaker, frontman and an old friend, visited my mobile studio in Richmond, Virginia and sat for a series of portraits. The mobile studio – set up outside of the United Blood punk and hardcore music festival – was just getting ready for sitters when Anderson walked by. I delighted in grabbing him and guilting him into sitting for me.
And now for something completely different – Well before I started assisting photographers and spending all of my time in the darkroom I pushed my way into photographing as many metal and hardcore bands as possible. Photography was a fantastic point of entry into hardcore – I had a reason to be there even when I didn’t know anybody and my cameras (and the work that I was producing) opened a lot of doors and started many friendships that I still have to this day. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
