Please join me Saturday January 16th, 2015 at Old Towne Vinyl's Grand Opening in Orange, CA.
San Diego's La Bodega Gallery January 30th, 2016 in a B&W Group Photography Exhibit.
I will also be showing 2 artistic film pieces at The Dirty Show in Detroit, Michigan February 12th-20th, 2016.
My photo-journalistic work was first published in 1994 with the high hopes of one day meeting
my favorite band, the pioneers of punk, The Ramones.
In 1995 I accomplished my goal and was able to meet and photograph The Ramones.
I then realized photography was my calling and have been documenting the music scene
and working with music artists of all calibers specializing in film photography
with my 35mm Nikons, and 120mm Graflex twin lens cameras.
"I enjoy seeing photographs or reading almost anything about The Ramones, but it is specially satisfactory when a written piece is done well with a true sense of understanding of Punk music. This is just the case in what Maggie has written about the band. She is also very good at capturing the bands spirit in photos."
