Crush Nova Shoot and Roadtrip

June 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

Last weekend I worked with a band called Crush Nova, who did a set at the 2011 Boston Pride. It was weather-wise a dismal day, but we were able to make some photographs inside the City Hall Plaza, something I wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to do. The building was created by architects Kallmann McKinnell & Knowles in the late 60’s, a style of architecture that’s called Brutalism(and for good reason, if you’ve ever walked around inside that place). It’s a cold and unwelcoming building but there is still some attraction to it. With their start time pushed back, it allowed us to make more photographs than we originally had time for. They were a fun band to work with and put on a pretty good show.

In less than 24 hours, I am going to be embarking on a road trip across the country. I plan on taking pictures of people I meet along the way, scenes that don’t confront me on a regular basis and mainly documenting America as if I were trying to diagnose it. I’m not sure what I’ll find, but I am anticipating whatever it is I do.

Although I plan on posting once or twice along the way, but if I don’t talk to you before I return…Happy 4th.
