I still remember my college roommate bringing a copy of Ray Gun Magazine home one day and how we pored over its pages - wondering both why couldn’t we read the text and in the next second, marveling at how brilliant it was. These first issues of Ray Gun were designed by the legendary David Carson and I’ve loved his work ever since. I’m honored I was able to photograph him. Though I am not a designer, I like to feel his own independent spirit has inspired me along the way.
It’s fitting I also got to photograph him the weekend Apple named him as one of their 30 Most Influential Mac Users on their 30th anniversary.
