David Carol: What was the first photo you took and thought to yourself, “This is what I want to do?”

Robert Larson: It was actually a picture that I didn’t take. My grandmother had tripped outside and fallen on her face, cutting and bruising it up pretty badly. I was living with my grandparents at the time and my grandpa called, told me what happened, and said to meet them at the emergency room. I sat next to her while the doctor put in the stitches… she kept trying to talk and tell the doctor that her grandson loved to take pictures and asked if it would be alright if I did; she was so used to me taking pictures all the time. The doctor said okay… but It hadn’t occurred to me to photograph something like that - a sad and painful moment as opposed to all the other ones. I explained that I hadn’t thought to bring my camera with me to the ER.

The next day I did bring my camera to the hospital and took a picture of her beat up head in a neck brace… she looked terrible but she was smiling at me with her eyes as if she was the happiest grandmother in the world. The photo I didn’t take and the photo that I did take… the experience changed my whole attitude about photography. My heart was all in from that point forward.

This is just a tease, 10 images from a shoebox of 340 and counting. I’ve been working on this series from the moment I took my first picture. Always photographing the people around me - the people who love me and who I love in return. We’ve had this inside joke for awhile now… I think my friend Funke started it one night a few years ago - while extremely drunk he yelled at the top his lungs declaring "this summer is going to be the summer of our lives!" It was indeed a good one, but typical to such close social circles, there was a bit of drama; and that particular summer ended a bit less glamorously than we had hopped. It was then declared that the NEXT summer would be the summer of our lives. And so on and so fourth. The fact is we all grew up here in Los Angeles - summer time is more or less always in season. We try to mix things up, go on vacations, see new places. But for the most part we’ve all been going to the same party since high-school - for the core members, that was ten year ago. Things have not changed much during that time, at least not until recently.



We’ve attended two weddings in the last year, one of which was mine. By the end of this summer we’ll have also had two going away parties for two of our other close friends. It seems that against our worst judgment - some of us are actually starting to grow up… and grow apart. It’s for the best, but a bitter sweet pill to swallow none the less. Maturity rears it’s ugly head. So this is it. Not the end of a group, but of a joke. Summer time is just around the corner, and this one is gonna be good. Really good.
