• Image of Sleep at FYF Los Angeles 2010

8x10 RC Silver Gelatin Print, all prints are printed by me in the darkroom using Omega enlarger and high quality RC papers. This image is actually from not that long ago taken at FYF in Los Angeles. FYF seems like its growing to be the new gotta go to Southern California festival outside of Coachella. Each year brings just as eclectic line up as the last and the audience just seems to get bigger and bigger every year. In 2010 one of the bands I was pretty excited to see was Sleep. I totally missed the boat with this band the first time around. They actually played at Jabberjaw, a club I went to often and had I known about them I would have definitely checked them out. I love guitarist Matt Pike's other band, High On Fire. And eventually learned about Sleep by being a fan of that band. I was hoping I would get a pic that captured how they sound and when I saw my negs and this image. I felt I captured it proper, Matt Pike in lit silhouette in mid strum maybe, hair flailing and a contrasty image. It just makes me think of one of the 6 parts to Jerusalem when I look at it.
