This October, I had the honor of joining some of my favorite North Texas-based photographers for a collective photography exhibit at Kettle Art in Deep Ellum. The Dallas chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers brought Mike Brooks, Kathy Tran, Daniel Rodrigue, Erin & Steven Reeves, Jason Janik, Joel Winburne and myself together to present "Caught in the Act". Together we showcased the great community that is Texas music through our perspective lenses. While some of the pieces showcased similar content, there's no doubt each point of view is uniquely different.
Concert photography is truly an art form that many don't often get to experience or even attempt to tackle. With ever-changing light scenarios, constantly moving subjects and traversing through crowded photo pits or crowds, photography in these conditions is never ideal. Somehow, this group of photographers have definitely not let any of those things get in the way of capturing some great moments that truly tell stories far beyond the stills.
It was great to see so much support come from friends, colleagues and so many media sources (i.e. The Dallas Morning News, Central Track, Dallas Observer, KERA, NPR and more). The exhibit runs through November 5th, so if you're in the Dallas area, make sure to swing through Kettle Art and check it out for yourself. Don't hesitate to buy some prints and support the local art community while you're at it!
Special thanks to Daniel Driensky & Robert Hold for capturing these rad moments at the opening reception on Thursday, October 27th.
