Jeremy Butler set up a darkroom in his parent's utility room while in high school in Phoenix, around 1970. He pestered his friends relentlessly and ruthlessly throughout the 1970s--constantly thrusting the camera in their faces.

But he never could afford to print all the images on some 100 contact sheets. Now that he has a scanner, he's gone wild rediscovering the images he shot during that decade. I guess it's just the law of averages that some of them are quite good.

In the 1980s, Jeremy began shooting more color film. He had no access to a black-and-white darkroom and so the impetus to shoot B&W gradually faded. And he was an early convert to digital photography as the 20th century came to a close.

These black-and-white images from the seventies provide a view of the decade through the lens of an adolescent photographer who then came of age during that era.
