I recently spent a Sunday afternoon with Maura and Tom in Watertown, Mass. Peter and I have known Tom since 2008, which is when he walked into the record store where Peter worked. They quickly bonded over their shared love of bicycles, music, and vinyl records. Peter introduced me to Tom as “this very interesting guy” who had just moved to Boston from California. Besides collecting vinyl, Tom also DJs and is a director and producer for PBS programs.
Peter and Tom began selling records together at the Somerville Rock n’ Roll Yard Sale. A few years ago at one of those sales, Tom introduced us to his girlfriend Maura. He recently asked if I could photograph him at home with his biggest loves: Maura, and of course, his records.
