For the past ten years, I have been taking pictures of musicians as they perform. Many of the images I have taken haven't been seen by anyone. Luckily, this is about to change. I am proud to announce the musical archives project. For an extended period of time, I will be scanning images from performances previously shot on film, like the photo of Nic Offer of !!! at the 2003 Village Voice Siren Festival, above. I have lots of unprocessed rolls of film and with the help of the fine, wonderful folks at Accurate Photo Shop in Park Slope, these never before seen images will be posted here and on Flickr.
Johnny Whitney of Jaguar Love performs during the eighth annual Village Voice Siren Festival on Saturday, July 19, 2008 at Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY. The free, day-long festival might be the last one held in this location since Coney Island is scheduled for redevelopment. Additional pictures from the festival are available on Flickr, in this set.
Sylvain Sylvain of The New York Dolls performs during the seventh annual Village Voice Siren Festival on Saturday, July 21, 2007. To the one or two people who may be reading this, the Siren Festival series will end after tomorrow's post. This is either good or bad news depending if you're tired of these pictures or not.
