Isolation Drills #1-15

In a series for MAGNET Magazine called “Isolation Drills,” Philadelphia-area musicians speak about what it means to be an artist right now during the COVID-19 pandemic. Portraits are taken by me and the words are directly from the artists. Fifteen have been published so far. Visit my page on my website here to see a gallery and visit MAGNET Magazine here to read each one here. There are many more to come!

2017 Year in Review

2017 has been a watershed year. The highlights are led by my first photography show at Ox Coffee and my publication in numerous publications thanks to a great relationship with the band The Dream Syndicate. Many thanks go out to Time Out Philadelphia, Impose Magazine, Pop Entertainment, Oxford American and Magnet Magazine for supporting my work. Seeing around 150 shows and more bands than I can count made choosing a selection of shots challenging and fun. The photos below are a limited selection of the best shots I feel I captured in 2017.
