Born and raised in Seattle, Little moved to LA in 1982 after graduating with a photography degree from Seattle’s Central College.
I started photographing my friends and then friends of friends and eventually I traveled all over the country making pictures. Via the Internet, I was able to connect with this large but unseen network of men who share similar sensibilities. I identify with these men physically, emotionally and spiritually. I wanted to show the strength, integrity and personalities of the individuals I was fortunate enough to capture.
