Photos of Citizen at Warped Tour

I think it takes a lot to just connect with a band from their live show. its hard, you don’t know their lyrics, you don’t know when anything is going to happen, you don’t have any sound for context in the back of your mind and this leave point of referenceless (it should be a word) when trying to piece together what they are doing. All you have is what they are giving and I quite enjoy that about seeing a band live without having listened to them prior. I saw the band live, I asked the singer if I could take his portrait- hence the sweaty half naked shot below. Then a few days later I found them and asked if I could take their portraits and they were all down.

I think these are some of my favorite portraits I have ever shot. I just love how normal they are, but how different they are. They don’t really have to try, they just exist and exist very well. Kind of like their music. I don’t know much about these guys or about their music, but I do enjoy it and they were very nice to me. It made me nervous asking them and they treated me well. So thanks for letting me shoot you, here are your images. I still need to send them to you personally so I apologize for that. But maybe you will find them on here first or some of your fans will send them to you, who knows.

Tried something a little different here for fun. Just put their lyrics over their faces with the help of Ana writing them out. If you are a fan of the band feel free to post them on your tumblr or where ever.
