Daniel PetersonSomewhere, someone is always doing it. In the '70s, it was Larry Clark, turning the camera on his beautiful, wayward friends. In the '80s, it was Nan Goldin, documenting her clique in the East Village. Most recently, it’s been Ryan McGinley, immortalizing his circle of vandals and young artists. The magic of bohemian youth is fleeting but intense. Daniel Peterson, a photographer in Portland, has lately been catching his friends and times in full flower. –Jon Raymond
