High School Daze, Porterville, California 1988-1991
8 images Created 2 Jan 2009
My name is Jeremy Hogan and I've been creating photographs for more than twenty years. When I was a freshman in high school I read a photojournalism textbook and a veteran photographer said one should never be without their camera. I took this to heart and in high school I always had a camera with me. I think some of the kids at my high school probably thought I was pretty weird. A lot of people probably thought I was weird but now twenty years later I have this great collection photos from my high school years in the late 1980s and early 1990s. I doubt there is a collection of images anywhere else like these made by a teenager, me, during this period of time. These are the images I made when I was in high school. The photos are of friends, rep rallies, sports, landscapes, skateboarders, and a lot of stuff. I'm slowly scanning in the archive of these images. The photos were made in Porterville, California in the Central Valley between 1987 and 1991 or so. Some of these were made for the yearbook or the high school newspaper, some were made on freelance assignments for the local paper but the majority were just made just for fun.
