Dummy Dumpster, Guitar Lightnin’ Lee, and Shovels and Rope are all rock stars to me and their mugs deserve to be preserved. The photo of Erykah Badu is my tribute to Essence Fest—a place where girls rule and boys drool. I am forever in awe of that festival and I encourage everyone to check it out one year if they haven’t already. Rounding out this year’s photo dedication are these badass skater girls from Ladies’ Skate Day at Parisite Skate Park and a goat from my mom’s new farm digs out West. I’d say it was a good year. I’m looking forward to capturing and editing my way through the next.
