young junkie, 1

He's 21, has been in and out of jail and rehab. He's warm, open, friendly, well-spoken and polite. He said "I'm not ashamed of who I am or what I do."


Ryan Sullivan introduced me to him.

    Safer injection use is great! Thanks for sharing!!!!
    And it's so hot to see him get off. :-)

    Rather sad really. I hate to see a young kid ruin his life so. Once your hooked its hard to get off that shit and most don't until they end up dead somewhere.

    Very sad & disheartening story. I can only feel sympathy for a young life that has already suffered & will probably suffer more.
  • the old ONE TWO 5y

    These striking photos are so complex, powerful, disturbing, beautiful, intimateand sad. This series provokes thought, horror, empathy, desire and lust. As I say, complex. But amazing pictures. Congratulations. He's beautiful, and I hope he escapes this, despite his ambivalence.

    What the fuck is wrong with you. Get him to help. You're no better than the person who films the stabbing rather than call for help. It's not art, it's not hot. And you really do know that.

    This series may be edgy and revolting.... but it is unquestionably real. As with many of your other photos, this steps beyond pornography and shows a very human element that deserves to be documented and studied.
  • Normal For Norfolk 5y

    The images in this series keep popping back into my head at odd moments. They are firmly lodged in my memory -- such a powerful and striking series of immensely sad images, made all the stronger by your commentary. I admire almost everything you choose to share with us, but this is truly amazing work. Thank you.

    It surprise me how prudish some gays are.... Safe injection is important, and if some are still going to inject, they should -at least- do it safely.
  • You're crazy! 5y

    Thanks aztec1970now !!! That's the whole point. Reducing the risk and having a great time!!

    Wow. It's been a long time since I slammed. I remember the sex parties where I slammed a big ol shot in the restroom and would have them lined up pounding me. Those were the days.
