MIXTAPE: DRIVING THROUGH THE 90s
When we asked WNW Member #3110 Michael Wong to compile a mixtape of artists he's photographed, he made us nostalgic for the 90s. "I figured a mixtape to listen to while driving would be good with ten songs by ten artists that I photographed. When I was graduating college, the music business was in full swing in the 90s. I started shooting musicians and it was a dream to shoot an album cover for Aretha, a magazine cover with Oasis, and Blondie in New York. It was a really awesome fun time here when music ruled the clubs and venues.
A week before shooting the Beastie Boys, my turntable didn't stop playing their vinyl. I remember answering the phone and it was Mike D talking to me about shooting some pictures. I was in NYC doing exactly what I loved, shooting musicians that shaped my music taste."
