The photographs from this collection are some of the very first images produced under the "PMP" brand. 

I had the opportunity to photograph Lee England Jr. in the summer of 2011, while he was street performing at the Taste Of Chicago. If you have never heard him play his violin, you are truly missing something special.  His dedication to his craft is heard in every song that he plays.  Over the years I have watched him grow as an artist. The first time I heard him play was in the student center at Southern Illinois University (Carbondale). He had a crowd of people standing around him, calling out random songs, as he played each one by either memory or ear. The feat was remarkable, because it was all done by one man and one violin. In the years thereafter, I have watched him share the stage with countless musicians. I have the pleasure to call him a friend, and watching his climb in the music industry is definitely an inspiration to me and my work.
