Camp Howard's Tour Diary Looks Like a Sad Indie Film, But For All The Right Reasons

 

Photos by Henry Archer

 

Having grown up with the Camp Howard boys, traveling on the road comes pretty naturally. We all live together in Richmond so we are well adapted to each others different quirks and triggers. We have our lazy arguments in the van, but they die quick.Our experiences together give way for me as a photographer to float around and capture them with complete trust and vulnerability. Here is a series of photographs shot on my old n' trusty Minolta while on tour in December.
