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. Enjoy!
