GZA at Pickathon 2022 (MATHIEU LEWIS-ROLLAND)

Originally published on our sister site, the Portland Mercury.

[Editor note: Photojournalist Mathieu Lewis-Rolland began working with the Mercury in earnest during the 2020 protests, and has since moved into a career of photojournalism, working for outlets like Reuters and Getty. However, he started out photographing live music. A drummer for groups like A Happy Death, Lewis-Rolland told us his approach to music photography is heavily informed by how he would want to be photographed. Lewis-Rolland captured far more wonderful images from Pickathon 2022 than we could fit in our Pickathon 2022 wrap-up or even in this dedicated photo essay. Check out his Twitter thread of photos from the fest, as it was happening, and his Instagram for ongoing collections of his work.]
