Someone Has To Die

During 2002-2004, I photographed Davey von Bohlen, lead singer of the genre-defining band The Promise Ring. Using his lyrics as a starting point, I used medium format transparency film to capture Davey’s life at home and on the road. Carrying a large, heavy studio camera to shoot candid images slowed my process and allowed me to explore the details of the increasingly personal path he walked as a nearly retired rock star at 30.
