NIKKI SIXX: CONVERSATIONS WITH ANGELS
to benefit Covenant House California, Los Angeles
In 2007, Nikki Sixx released his NY Times bestselling memoir, The Heroin Diaries chronicling his worst year of addiction in the mid-80’s during which he overdosed, was clinically dead for several minutes and which ultimately lead to his path of recovery. Today, Nikki has been sober for 17 years.
Coinciding with the release of the Heroin Diaries in 2007, Nikki partnered with Covenant House California, Los Angeles to pay forward his good fortune and create a music room for the homeless youth finding shelter at the Covenant House campus. The music program that’s been put into place as a result has been Covenant House’s most successful and popular program amongst its residents to date.
This Fall, in October 2017, Nikki is proudly presenting his first ever photography exhibition in partnership with Leica Camera. He has often called photography “his new drug that has replaced addiction in his life and helped keep him sober”. On occasion of the gallery exhibition, Nikki is once again partnering with Covenant House with the goal to raise $100,000 to create a Photography Room and program to benefit the residents of Covenant House California, Los Angeles and expand the creative endeavors of the organization.
Nikki greatly appreciates your kind donation in support of Covenant House California!

“Life is about change. For me, photography is about capturing that moment in time before it changes. Afterwards, we can use it as a bookmark, or a timestamp, to remember the better and the worse times that have happened. We can also use it to create a new perspective and spark a change in people. I feel motivated to tell stories through photography and sometimes, if I’m lucky, discover things about myself. I’ve always said as I head out the door, camera in hand, that I am embarking on an unattainable journey, but, if I’m lucky, I might just stumble across and have a conversation with an angel.” — Nikki Sixx
