If you're up-to-date on the local music scene, you're familiar with the work of our talented photographer, Peter Anderson. Anderson shoots high-quality photos of everything from band portraits to skate competitions and local events, but his passion and forte is live music. Though he is completely self-taught over the past five years, Anderson has had photos pubished in Decibel Magazine, had work shown at the U, and had his photographs featured monthly in SLUG for the past year. Some of his favorite SLUG assignments have been shooting Cerebral Ballzy's live show and Localized with Speitre and Max Pain and the Groovies. Unfortunately for SLUG and our readers, Anderson is moving to France mid-September to pursue other dreams. Thank you for all of your hard work, and we hope you get lots of opportunities across the pond to hear and shoot live music! Check out some of Anderson's best work in this issue's feature on James Silva.
