This book is a photographic essay about the Montana music scene. It documents the bands, people, and venues around the state that make music possible.
Born in Helena, MT in 1983 I grew up with an intense love of music and admiration for the people who made it. After returning to Montana in 2003 I began to take an interest in the bands around the state. I started to document the Montana music scene in late 2003, and haven't stopped since. The Forgotten State documents the indie and hardcore music coming out of Montana from Spring 2006- WInter 2007.
