The Dead Narratives


For many years I traveled around this diverse country as a Deadhead, living on a bus and traveling to Grateful Dead concerts, Rainbow Gatherings and other festivals. I made my living by sewing and selling homemade corduroy hats. Often I could not afford film but when I could, I was able to capture a rarely seen side of this underground culture. The Dead Narratives is a collection of photos and stories about life on the road and the fascinating people I met along the way.

These photographs were mostly taken between 1986 to 1998 using a Pentax K1000 with 35mm film.
