Night at the Redwood, 2018

One of my all-time favorite photographs is a shot from LIFE magazine showing a drive-in movie theater in Utah. For years I'd wanted to do a shoot at one of the most iconic places of my own childhood, and finally in May of 2018 I spent an evening at the Redwood Drive-In out in West Valley, Utah, getting the raw materials for this modest photo illustration. As much fun as it was to take pictures, though, it was almost more meaningful to just stand there in the theater and feel what I felt so many times as a kid growing up in the 1980s, wishing I had some cherry Twizzlers and some Mr. Salty pretzel twists to complete the experience.
