Walking into Will Hart’s house is like stepping into his brain. Amongst the piles of CDs, musical equipments, recording devices and cassette tapes you’ll notice something that looks like it’s been there since 1995, but maybe it was just randomly thrown down the day before. It’s widely believed that Will is a true musical genius and I’ve personally never met anyone like him. He was the first of the many members of the Elephant Six Collective to move from Ruston, LA to Athens, GA. I normally don't move things around when I was making photos in people's homes but when I saw the Green Typewriter hidden away, above the stairs, I knew I had to move it into better light. The Green Typewriter had been featured on the Olivia Tremor Control’s first full length album, Dusk at Cubist Castle.
