While I believe the photos stand alone; I wanted to give some context. I've listened to the music of Amenra for a little over 10 years now, but I saw them live for the first time last August in Brooklyn, NY. While I try to avoid using a phone unless its necessary or for work, I was incredibly grateful for social media as it was how my friendship began with Colin H van Eeckhout, the vocalist of Amenra.
Because he reached out to me about working with the band more closely in documenting their time around the city prior to their show at Warsaw in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, not only did I start a friendship; but I started to collaborate with a band whose music already means a great deal to me, and has only increased in meaning as I continue my friendship with the respective members of Amenra. These photos are from the time I spent with them starting in Berkeley, CA and ending in Los Angeles.
Recorded by Billy Anderson (Sleep, Brutal Truth, Bell Witch) Amenra's latest album, Mass VI, is out now via Neurot Recordings.
