Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave., July 3, 2014.
This is Will, a man I met a couple weeks ago on Figueroa near my new digs in Highland Park, Los Angeles. I watched him deftly balance this beat-up loveseat on top of the matching couch, and then photograph the arrangement, which he explained to me was his art.
A couple nights ago, on Colorado Boulevard in Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, I photographed drummer John Herndon for my improv musician series. John is a fellow ex-Chicagoan who I’ve shot many times over the years, in different bands including Tortoise, Isotope 217, and Five Style. (OK, so maybe it’s an IFO.)
And below is a portrait I shot in 2003 for a Peter Margasak article in the Reader (I used a 3D camera for some of the shots during that session).
