Australia in 1995

I recently found an old box of negatives and took them to the lab to be proof sheeted so I can ad them to my archive. These negs are from a 1995 trip to Australia with Tobin Yelland, Max Shaaf, Ethan Fowler, Sean Cliver, and Deanna.

Old Square Photos from OZ

In 1995 I was able to go to Australia to skateboard and be part of a music tour called the "Summersault" festival. I took an old Russian twin lens reflex camera that Miki Vuckovich gave me and tried to shoot some photos.

Deanna talks with Mike Mills, who came out to be part of an art show that Aaron Rose had organized called "Culture is our Business." And he was able to come on the music part of the tour too.
