Michael Lavine took his first photograph when he was ten with a pinhole camera made out of a milk carton, and the rest is history. He grew up in Denver, Colorado where in high school he played lacrosse and worked as the yearbook photographer. He went to The Evergreen State College in Olympia WA where he fell in with a cool group of misfits and artists. Hanging out on The Ave with his trusty Leica, he documented the underground punk scene of Seattle. 26 years later, Abrams published GRUNGE, the quintessential book of photographs on the birth of that infamous movement.
