On The Bright Side by Sarah Frankie Linder : Opening Reception

  • Modern Rocks Gallery 916 Springdale Road Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

We're love you to come and join us for the launch of Photographer Sarah Frankie Linder’s New Concept Collection at Modern Rocks Gallery Brings a Fresh Take on the High-Speed Art of Live Music Photography. 

Fans of live music know Sarah Frankie Linder’s work across a wide range of regional and national outlets, including Pitchfork and BrooklynVegan, but the Austin-based photographer’s new “On the Bright Side” collection shines a light on the high-speed art of live music photography. Using photos taken at music festivals and venues around Austin, TX, Linder allowed the elusiveness of a blurred, auto-focus effect to create the foundation of each image. The color of each was manipulated, while retaining selected elements of the original, resulting in a new, fresh atmosphere captured in time.

By revitalizing these archived photographs in "On the Bright Side,” Linder invites the eye to explore a unique representation of the live music experience that is vibrant, curious, and thought-provoking. The visually stunning collection features Sarah’s alternative views on bands and artists, including Flaming Lips, Depeche Mode, Savages, Smashing Pumpkins, Rush, Black Angels, Atoms for Peace and Patti Smith. 

Special thanks to our sponsors:

Our friends at Revolution Spirits will be keeping us refreshed with some delicious gin cocktails.
