CMJ 30 | New York City Concert Photography

I’m excited to announce the opening of my first NYC exhibition! It’s a group show focusing on 30 years’ worth of imagery from the CMJ Music Marathon, which I shoot every year as an official photographer for CMJ. As the opening is happening smack in the middle of the fest, I’ll be taking that evening off to attend. Hope to see all you locals there. More info below.

The festival dominates the downtown area of New York City with exclusive parties, daytime exhibits, film premieres, seminars, and special events.

“We’re incredibly thrilled to work with Paper Spaceship and CMJ Music Marathon for this upcoming exhibit,” says Patrick Sullivan, owner of P.J.S. “Band photography has always played such an integral role in sharing the live music experience.
