Announcing My New Exhibit Of Photos

 In September of 2001, I first photographed the Avett Brothers at Fat City. It wasn't the first time that I had photographed members of the band, and it wouldn't be the last.

Over the last twenty years, I have been witness to, and documented their journey. There's a lot of stories, and a lot of photos from those adventures that have never been told. Until now.

The Avett Brothers have given myself and the Earl Scruggs Center the opportunity to put together A Symphony For The Road, an exhibit featuring my photos from the last 23 years. Nearly all of the photos in this exhibit have never been seen before, and tell a remarkable story. Please join us in February when we open this exhibit at the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, NC.

More information soon. Thank you all, and see you on the road.

May A Sad Moment Lead To Better Times

 Like many others, I was heartbroken to see the fire that destroyed much of Jim and Susie Avett's home over the weekend. My first photo and recording sessions with the Avett Brothers were done behind that house, and visiting the homestead from time to time has always been a wonderful memory to return to.

Thankfully, Jim and Susie will rebuild, but any love, support and good vibes you can send to them is greatly appreciated. Bad things happen to good people too many times in this world, but how we respond is how we can again make things better.
