Danny Clinch gives his new book a once over at his studio in Manhattan. photos by Nina Westervelt
Our annual Shindig is a celebration of the creative culture that informs our company culture and serves as a touchstone for our overall aesthetic. Music and photography are integral to the experience. So asking famed photographer Danny Clinch to exhibit work from his upcoming monograph at this year’s gathering was a no-brainer.
Lucky for us: Danny, one of his generation’s most prolific photographers, having shot generations of rock groups and world-class icons over his 30-year career - think Johnny Cash, Pearl Jam Tupac, Tom Waits, Bjork, and Bruce Springsteen, to name a very few - was more than happy to play along.
"Still Moving" is both the title of the book and the public installation at our Florence store that Danny very kindly agreed to share with our community and weekend guests next Friday and Saturday. As an added bonus, on Saturday night the studio will host an artist Q&A with Danny moderated by noted photography expert Susan Sherrick, partner and director of Sherrick & Paul, a new gallery opening this fall in Nashville.
The show will hang in the photography studio attached to the store at 114 North Court Street in Florence, on Friday and Saturday, August 15 & 16, from 10 am to 5 pm. The Q&A will take place at 7 pm on Saturday. All events associated with the exhibit are free and open to the public.
In advance of his show, Danny was happy to welcome fellow photographer (and our friend and frequent Journal collaborator) Nina Westervelt, into his NYC studio for a little shoot, not to mention indulge the Journal in a pre-Shindig Q&A session. Consider it a warm-up for next Saturday night’s festivities…
