My Record Collection

My Record Collection: A Photo Diary of All My Favorite Records


For a long time I have been itching to take pictures of my record collection.  When I first moved to New York, my record collection consisted of about five records.  Three of which were from The Shins.  Now, after living here for a little under a year I am proud at how my record collection has grown, along with my taste in music.

This shoot was really fun, and something I’ve never actually done on this platform. The shoot was shot in my dorm, and I just put on a few records and danced around.  To start off the shoot, I played an album that has been on my mind since it’s initial release.  The Far Field by Future Islands.


The Far Field - Future Islands

Future Islands has been a long time favorite band for me, they don’t have an album that I don’t like.  If you haven’t already listened to The Far Field I highly recommend it, the lead singer Samuel T. Herring recently broke up with his girlfriend and it is pretty evident in this album.  Personally, I like sad and emotional songs.  Listening to The Far Field is like taking a long night drive, or walk depending on where you live and just reflecting on life.  Weather that be a long term relationship you just got out of, or maybe you’re just making a transition in your life, The Far Field is easy to relate too and captivating.

But, this is a not a review of The Far Field, but a showcase of record collection.  I went a little over board with with photo’s so bare with me.  Also, not all of my records are included in the pictures (I went record shopping the day after this shoot) but I will add a complete list of my collection at the end of this post.

And it begins:
