Right after college I had this idea of driving across the country in some old van with a bunch of friends. Stopping as we please. Floating from city to city. Exploring little towns and middle-of-nowhere places along the way. The idea has since settled somewhere into the middle of my travel bucket list, slightly neglected and almost forgotten. That is until I got a message from my little brother. He was heading out of DC to go on tour with a talented group of musicians and artists in a tour bus turned art installation. 9 cities. 3 major festivals. 22 days, plus or minus a few (we want to maintain the freedom of the open road right?).
Meet one of the bus mates, John, through the photographer’s lens. “He plays the saxophone, the bongos, and can produce & DJ. On this trip he has kind of been Molly’s right hand man keeping up with her, making executive decisions and making sure we all get what we need. All five of us have been taking shifts in the side seat next to Molly to keep her alive and awake. John Jazz was sitting in the seat holding up conversation as I was sitting in my bed in the back of the bus editing. Looking up I saw a perfect opportunity for a candid photo. I picked up my camera threw on the 70-200mm f2.8 and snapped this photo. It came out great so I decided I’m going to snap a candid of each person in the co-pilot seat from my bed during their shift.”
