MOST published early west coast photographer, first gen, 1976-80.
Germs bassist Lorna Doom left us, January 16, 2019, (I was told due to cancer). MY PHOTOS OF LORNA were the MOST seen online. NO credit in 99.9% of posted images. Certainly no payment. To see larger images and purchase, go to Photostore.PunkPioneers.com.
I compiled some of my many Germs photos into small vids awhile ago. Everyone loved her. Lorna aka Terry aka Teresa Ryan was sweet, quiet, easy going, beautiful. Lorna was X’s “White Girl.” She was an essential participant in the very earliest days and nights of punk. I met and photographed her in early 1977. I last saw her was when that Germs film was released.

IF you wish that I continue to post and share photos and stories here and on Facebook, Please Donate Now! I’ve worked for 4over 42 years at a great loss. Great debt to create and caretake this great archive. IF you saw MY photos on merchandise, I didn’t get paid for it. Unless it’s linked from THIS site. Just so you know. I’ve never made a penny from most merch.
