Dash Snow

Dash Snow (b.1981) - American artist, who ran away from home at 13y, began living on the streets and taking photographs, he said, as a record of places he might not remember the next day.

Ryan McGinley, photographer: …Finishing all the drugs with him until the sun was up. Finding new and innovative ways to cover windows with towels, bed sheets, and newspapers so the night could last forever. And bathroom after bathroom after bathroom. Why do I remember the bathrooms the most? It’s always been a bottle of Jack, a bag of coke, and some beers. …And lots of  bathrooms. That’s what our lives were. Adventures on drugs.

Dash Snow died in July 2009 from a heroin overdose.
