In a show titled Conversations with Angels, Sixx’s most precious moments and interactions from the past decade will be displayed in an intimate series of photos depicting homelessness and drug addiction, topics that Sixx was all too familiar with before photography helped change his life. The exhibit, Conversations with Angels, will be on display at the Leica Gallery Los Angeles October 4 through November 5, aligning with the 10th anniversary of Sixx’s memoir, “The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.” In Conversations with Angels, Sixx shows the world his photographic methodology first hand. His subjects, who he considered his angels, remind him through conversation and interaction that his life, and the decisions he makes, are important. In turn, he seeks to find the hope in his subjects to escape their own troubles and achieve a better, cleaner life. “When I get home from shooting,” Sixx says, “I look at those photos for hours. I zoom in on their eyes, their lips, and their fingers and I look for some hope. If I can find that hope then I’ve done them justice in my photography.” Nikki Sixx’s collaboration with Leica Camera coincides with the 10th Anniversary of his New York Times bestselling Memoir “The Heroin Diaries” and “The Heroin Diaries” anniversary edition soundtrack album by his other band, SIXX:A.M. On the original release of The Heroin Diaries in 2007, Sixx partnered with Covenant House California, Los Angeles and raised over $ 250,000.00 to instate a music room on the organization’s campus. On occasion of the Heroin Diaries anniversary and his first photo exhibition, Sixx once again will support Covenant House to raise funds for a photography room and program benefitting the residents.
