Crystal Castles @ Terminal 5 in March
The New York Photo Festival‘s Fall invitational presents a selection of images that capture the powerful relationship between photography and music in all its forms, be it solo musicians, bands, rock concerts, grand operatic productions, or intimate one-on-one sessions.
From Herman Leonard’s jazz portraits, which defined an era of cool, to Pennie Smith’s explosive shot of Paul Simonon smashing his bass. From Mapplethorpe’s intimate portraits of Patti Smith, to the iconic photography of Anton Corbijn and Laura Levine, photography has long been instrumental in how we experience music.
Strip away the music, and what you have is an image that defines a moment, an emotion. An image that tells a story.
The photographs selected for “Audio/Visual” capture the unique relationship between photography and music – be it solo musicians, bands, rock concerts, grand operatic productions, or intimate one-on-one sessions.
“Audio/Visual: An exhibition of music photography” will feature over 100 photographs by 70 artists – on view at the famed gallery and event space The PowerHouse Arena in Dumbo (Brooklyn), from October 19 to November 3.
BV photographer Chris La Putt has two photos in the exhibition, one of Amy Winehouse, and the you one see of Alice Glass from Crystal Castles above. More pictures from that March Terminal 5 show, and the full list of photographers in the exhibition, below…
