1980s Los Angeles

14 and Shooting describes a general time period in which I started shoot Los Angeles pink bands and youth culture around 1981 when I was actually 13 years old. I just loved to shoot and be in the darkroom. I did slow down around 18 years old when I went to college. I left college before completing my undergrad to join rock band L7. In the years that followed I photographed our adventures with Faith No More, Nirvana and other great figures of 90s culture, but never returned to the kind of intimate studio style portraits or street photography I had started in the 1980s. Around 2015 I noticed many of my old Polaroid, prints, and film were fading and I went on a massive effort to create an archive and raised money to scan what turned out to be over 12k of negatives and related materials. AS of 2020 I am still sorting and organizing.
