Cool Polaroid Portraits of 1990's Alt Rock Stars

Johnny Riggs worked as a DJ at WHFS in Baltimore/Washington D.C. from 1992-2000, XM Radio from 2000-2002, and now works again at WHFS. He also met a lot of musicians when he played in the bands Cinnamon Toast and Trampoline.
"I've been taking photographs for hundreds of years. After photography classes in college & lots of time spent developing my own pictures, I always ended up liking the Polaroid test shots more than the final product.
So I bought lots of Polaroid Captiva cameras and special lenses in the early 90s and never looked back. Since then I've taken hundreds of closeup shots of famous & not-so-famous faces."
These portraits were taken with a Polaroid Captiva and uploaded to his flickr page which contains a stockpile of close-up Polaroids of all your fave ’90s alt rock stars. Please click on each image to find out more of its infomation.
