My first Bonnaroo, coming off my first ever real vacation.  I figured I’d be playing for a couple thousand in a tent somewhere and it kinda took my breath away when we stepped on stage to 50 thousand engaged music fans.  The start of a tradition where I asked them to flip me off and photographed them from atop the piano.

Many of these images were captured on traditional film, shot on a Leica M3 or Rolleiflex - the negative scanned.  Others are digital photos, shot with a Leica Monochrom or Sony and adjusted in a digital darkroom. I’ve spend a good bit of my adult life in a darkroom - I’m interested in the best possible classic print, informed by the process of the traditional darkroom.  Digital Silver Imaging of Boston MA has a unique Ilford system that can take my adjustments and deliver a Silver Gelatin print - Silver prints will be stamped with our seal of authenticity.  A traditional archival bad assed darkroom print.
