That feeling when you walk into a room and are filled with an overwhelming desire to blurt out (without getting too deep and meaningful) about how much music is part of our being while racing around the room trying to take it all in at once. Well, that’s what happened to me when I walked into Besser Space in Collingwood on the opening night of EVE: A Photography Exhibition Celebrating Women in Rock’n’Roll.
I’ve experienced that feeling a lot over these few weeks attending friend’s art exhibitions all centred around music and all held in Melbourne, the music and arts capital of Australia (based on my humble opinion).
Music photographer, Zo Damage put together her current solo exhibition, EVE: A Photography Exhibition Celebrating Women in Rock’n’Roll as part of a series of exhibitions Zo has held during 2016.
As well as curating her own (and other) exhibitions, Zo is currently photographing a band a day as part of her 365 Days Live Music Photography Project. Samples of her photos so far were on display for people to hold and sort and play.
Zo started this project in February of 2016 and is therefore up to around 150 days, so ALMOST half way! Such an incredibly fantastic achievement that makes me want to collapse in a heap at the thought of it.
Live music photography requires stamina. I know what it’s like to photograph live music night after night after night after night with very little sleep but to actually commit to 365 days is in another realm to me.
All the prints are for sale and Zo also has limited edition box sets of this and another two exhibitions.
