I’m sure just about everyone knows Ray. We met a number of years ago, I think maybe at Riot Fest in Chicago. I love this guy; he’s one of the most honest and genuine dudes in the punk scene. I took this photo at the Summit Music Hall in Denver when Teenage Bottlerocket was playing Punk Rock Bowling in Denver 2017.
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.
