I'm apparently a top photographer in town. So says this cool article from the Mint Museum. The real highlight, however, is to get a picture of Jan Barley published in a museum's publication. Your story goes on, Jan.

My Back Pages

I'm starting to wrap up a month-long project to get my photo archives back in order, after years of letting migrate to more and more boxes. I should also have my entire Avett Brothers archive digitized by the end of the week. Any photos that anyone would like to see? Any social events that anyone is looking for? Post below, and let me know. Hope to see you all again soon.

Update From The Archive Bunker

For those that want to know, I've grown a beard (for the first time in my life) and let my hair grow, and I will cut it all off when the order is lifted. Or I have a gig, whichever comes first. Apart from that, I'm hanging in there, and should have some new archival projects to post soon. Keep stay and sane out there.
