This is Dave, professional nice guy and prolific merch-slinger. Dave actually lived in Seattle for a long time, but was gone by the time I arrived here. We ended up meeting anyway while he was touring with Masked Intruder. I’m always stoked to go to a show that Dave is going to be at. This photo was taken at Fest 16 while he was hawking The Lillingtons‘ stuff.
At Fest 15, I realized I have met a ton of people through music, but I always only seem to take photos of bands onstage. As a way to switch things up, I decided to point my camera at people instead. These are the people I have met through music. One shot, black and white, in the moment. No other rules.
