John Cates

John Cates found an interest in photography when he started going to punk shows in basements at 16 years old. He began documenting D.I.Y. Punk, Metal, and Noise shows around the state of Michigan, rarely seen at a show without a camera and sometimes being to only member in the audience. His interest later grew from punk shows to documenting the everyday objects around him. John is now entering his senior year of undergrad and his work explores the relationship between color and texture with the subjects in front of his lense. When he's not in the studio, he can be found shooting at D.I.Y. venues around the Detroit area, or playing bass gutitar bands The Stasis and Phoolan Devi
