"While the Others Were Sleeping" Show At Sacred Gallery
This Saturday, April 3rd, join us for a hardcore night at Sacred Gallery for the music photography show of Nathaniel Shannon entitled While The Others Were Sleeping. The opening kicks off at 7PM in the excellent exhibition space adjacent to Sacred Tattoo in NYC's SoHo.
This solo show features images of raw, sweaty (and often bloody) live performances of artists including Henry Rollins, Dillinger Escape Plan, Pentagram, Gwar, and many more. Also on view are Nathaniel's group portraits and diptychs shot on tour and in the clubs. What makes Nathaniel's music photography so powerful is his instinct to capture the frenzied climax of that gig you'll remember for the rest of your life -- like Judas Priest's Rob Halford belting over Glenn Tipton's melodic hooks. Through this show, you can own a piece of that moment.
For a preview of the exhibition, check Nathaniel's online portfolio.
Nathaniel is a freelance photographer and musician from Michigan living in NYC. His work has appeared in over fifty publications, several record sleeves, and seven installations. A full-length book of his music photography is underway.
While The Others Were Sleeping is curated by the wonderful Kevin Wilson, who has an incredible line-up of shows through the year.
Hope to see you Saturday for a rock experience that won't get your teeth bashed in by an errant steel-toe boot. And yes, booze will be served.
