This project explores the symbiotic relationship between rock concert fans, the bands, and the photographer at music festivals. It is also a self-portrait of a music fan, musician, and photographer, who has been on both sides of the stage, barrier, and photo pit.
These images were made over the last 10 years on assignment at various music festivals in Austin, Texas, from the sweaty pit of each concert. Without the band there are no fans; without the fans, there is no band. One just cannot exist without the other.
