“Originally when I was shooting this project I was simply living my life with a camera. Later I began to set up and schedule portraits a bit more. I think the project has evolved a lot in tone because of that.

For the project I photographed both people I knew and a few strangers. I photographed a lot of friends who I grew up with going to punk shows. They are simultaneously very Midwestern and also outsiders.”
