Kristine Larsen was born in a tiny house in Alderwood Manor, in the great state of Washington. After a short stint as a child, she was catapulted into the world carrying a vintage Rollieflex camera that her mom gave her as a graduation gift. Posthaste, she moved to Seattle and began documenting piles of dirt and local rock bands for which the Pacific Northwest is so justly famous. Following a brief hiatus in Los Angeles, which was characterized by more bands but less dirt, she settled in New York City, where she found more grit, grime and rockers than she had ever imagined possible. Over time she moved around the big city shooting whatever stood in her way until finally settling in the financial district, where she lived a block-and-a-half from the World Trade Center for the next twelve years. Owing to a combination of implacable free market forces and real estate developers, she is now a resident of the Lower East Side.
