Backstage Archive is LIVE!

I’m working on a photography project called Backstage Archive. In the early 2000s I was obsessed with disposable cameras. I had one with me wherever I went, especially while on tour through America and around the world (playing drums with Charlie Hunter, John Mayer, Marc Broussard, Jesse Malin, The Alternate Routes and more.) I recently dug them out of storage and got some developed. Check out the pics on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
