"Anthology" Images and Words from the Twin Cities Music Scene
Sound...amplified riffs, vibrating bass lines and rhythmic drum beats are branded on to us via extraordinary experiences. Images...rife with soul and spirit, are frozen in time with a single click. And words...etched like eloquent graffiti, provide permanent markers for blurred, frenzied moments.
A comrade to the continuous rock n' roll upcycle, the photographer and writer burn these epic junctures into physical memory. Oft-unsung heroes of the music scene, they willingly trap themselves into an iron-clad love triangle with their muses: shoot, document, adore, repeat. And like any obsessed lover, they keep these carefully crafted memories stitched upon their sleeves like badges of honor: I was there. I remember. It meant something. And I was part of it.
Photographers Erik Hess, Steve Cohen, and Stacy Schwartz have been there and done that. Having shot hundreds of shows collectively in 2010 alone, this trifecta sums up an unforgettable time frame in local music. Supported with heartfelt words by music writers from various publications and inspired by their iconic subjects, Hess, Cohen, and Schwartz will display a thoughtfully curated selection of their most memorable musical experiences, as shot over the past year. This is Anthology.
