David: 20 Years Ago

Image

I figured I’d wind the clock back to the spring of 1992 to pay tribute to David McGee, whom I befriended while living in Minneapolis.  I photographed him for a documentary photography class at the Univeristy of Minnesota.  He was always hard to track down, as he could be playing his cello in one of about a dozen spots around Minneapolis and St. Paul.  He lived with different friends and this was a time before cell phones and texting, so he was almost impossible to reach.

While gathering material for this post, I ran across a movie made about him last year: http://vimeo.com/5984708.

David continued to play until last summer when he passed away at the age of 53.  

WELCOME TO MY NEW BLOG!   Stay tuned this February for some fun posts: A look back 2011 where I will feature a shoot from every season, a peak at some of my new corporate work, and the Hipstamatic web gallery.  Now, let’s get right to some recent work.  Check out the latest issue of Germantown Friends School’s magazine. Thanks to Meg Ragas and to Dana Griffin, both in the advancement office, for making the photos and the design of the article work so well.  This work is featured quite nicely on Wonderful Machine’s tearsheets page.
