Some of you might remember me as I used to be a fairly regular poster.
I am holding my first solo exhibition, Images Of Note, which delves through 6 years of rock photography in Brisbane, and I'd love it if you could make it.
It'll be at Foto Frenzy, Cnr of Bennetts Road and Old Cleveland Road in Brisbane, opening night (the night with the live music from Seya and Danny Widdicombe) is on Feb 28, so come share a drink and some food with me and bring a music loving friend!
You can see a bit more about what it's all about at www.imagesofnote.com.au
Here is the official writeup from someone more eloquent than me! It'd be great to see some of you guys there.
For six years Matt Palmer followed the rock’n’roll trail from Brisbane’s smallest venues to the biggest festivals including Big Day Out and Soundwave, camera at the ready to capture generations of performers.
He has photographed everyone from legends Iggy Pop, Metallica and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds through to Queensland’s biggest talents, Powderfinger, Regurgitator and Robert Forster among them, and rising stars like Conor Orberst.
Palmer was in the pit to shoot more than 400 bands, with his work originally published in publications including Rolling Stone, Rave and Australian Guitar Magazine. Palmer has since become a successful commercial and wedding photographer but this striking exhibition captures the essence of everything that’s exciting about rock’n’roll.
