Reflections & Retrospections

My next big project is Charlottesville Music: Reflections & Retrospections and it is going to be a gallery exhibit and book featuring over 100 local musician portraits all shot between August 2017 and June 2018.

Reflections & Retrospections is a photography project of the present rooted in the past documenting five decades of Charlottesville musicians in their creative spaces. The portraits were created to offer a behind the curtains look at the musicians in their own comfortable confines and collected to celebrate them and the Charlottesville music scene they nurtured. To supplement the photographs I decided to compile a oral history based on interviews with some of the musicians as well as non-musicians with intimate knowledge of local music and its impact on the Charlottesville community. This oral history makes no claims to being comprehensive, definitive or chronologically accurate.

The gallery exhibit will be First Fridays, July 6, 2018 at Studio IX. The book release is TBA but no later than Thanksgiving weekend 2018.

Wussy – She’s Killed Hundreds

My new Wussy video shot with Brian Wimer debuted on Friday via the A.V. Club and it was quickly picked up by Paste Magazine as well. The video was shot in December in Croaker, Virginia near Williamsburg. Smithsonian Magazine recently ran an interesting feature article on the secret location. Here is our “cast and crew” photo and the video follows below:

Lauren Hoffman

Last night I shot phase one of a video for a song on Lauren Hoffman’s new album to be released in early 2015. The song is called “Dragon” and yes, there will be fire as well as some other sexy surprises. Here is a quick shot of the band in front of the set we built for the shoot at IX Art Park.
