That is what I was realizing after I had already commented. I think it his so wonderful to have such gifted and talented minds along with you as supportive friends. My how ALL OF MY FRIENDS HAVE CHANGED SINCE THE CHILDREN HAVE ARRIVED!!! HA! I am , as you can guess the first divorced and no children . The odd one out now. The times of the Last Summer have been long gone now. It is strange . I never thought it would reach this time for us. Or, should I say me. I am odd girl out now. I am also the one with the camera and writing and clicking a new definition of life right now. 😜😜😜😜😜Dawn

Happy Friday, TSOL is now on Lens Culture!
Raised in Los Angeles, California; Robert Larson began working as a small town newspaper photographer in 2007 while learning his craft and thinking about a future as a documentary photographer. In subsequent years, he traveled the world, volunteering abroad with non-profit organizations such as Mercy Ships, The Red Cross and J/P HRO. It wasn't until after documenting the death of his grandfather in 2009, that he decided to focus on personal photo...

“Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.”

- Gloria Naylor


It’s summertime again, although living in L.A. means that it more or less always feels that way.  The year round perfect climate can gently lull you into a sense of a ceaseless season and an endless summer.  Yet all things come to an end.  

They say that friends are the family you choose, and I believe this to be true.  I have been lucky, having shared with my little family of friends ten summers running.  A few years back, one of my fondest friends started an inside joke that has perpetuated itself every year.   Funke -- while extremely intoxicated -- declared at the top of his lungs that this would be “the summer of our lives”.  We laughed, but held the sentiment close to our hearts. We pinned our hopes on having unforgettable summers together, each better than the last.  

And so the record spins. Every year we sing the same chorus, our favorite refrain: “This is going to be the summer of our lives.”  We did our best to live it up, having taken vacations and experienced new places together, much of which I have had the good fortune to document on film.  But it seems that things have now begun to change.  Against our better judgement, we are becoming full blown adults.  We’ve paired off, jobs turned into careers, we grew up.  Alas, maturity rears its ugly head!

House parties have gradually transitioned into more meaningful events.  In the last year, we’ve attended two weddings, one of which was my own.  And by the end of this summer, we’ll get piss drunk and bruised up twice more at going away parties for two of our closest companions, including Funke himself.  The time has come, it seems, to say goodbye...  

This essay is simply entitled “The Summer of Our Lives”.  The photographs it contains are very personal images of my friends, my compatriots, my partners in crime...  my family.  It illustrates those trips and parties, our intimacies and attractions to one another.  This is my farewell to the old times and my tribute to our finest attempts at the best summers ever.  I hope you enjoy it half as much as we did.
