Driven By Boredom was blog before blog was a word. Dating back to 2000, at some point this site was well regarded and well loved. The site was 100% orginal content, and because of this it stood out from many of the other blog sites around at the time. In 2003, I started managing a band called The Gaskets and I pretty much stopped updating the site. In 2006 I decided I wanted to start the site up again. At this point in my life I had been doing a lot of party photography, so this site features a lot of party photography. but that is not what this site is really about.
About me. My name is Nate Smith, but pretty much everyone I know has been calling me Igor since 1995. I was born in 1980, making me way too old for this shit. I still look like I am 20 though, so maybe it’s okay. I went to school for photography and film. I am pretty much obsessed with both. I have spent more than 10 years working in the music industry in one way or another and started taking photos in the mid 90’s in order to document the DC punk scene. I was born in Alexandria,VA and lived there until moving to Richmond, VA in 2001 and then Brooklyn, NY in 2006.
