The fantastic music website NO ECHO is featuring a gallery of some of my favorite live music photographs that I've taken, along with a little background behind how each image came about. Check it out here: http://www.noecho.net/features/photographer-jason-jamal-nakleh
Legendary Southern Brooklyn rock band Dead Air are reuniting for one night only at Williamsburg venue The Grand Victory on Jan. 10. The trio is playing at a goodbye party for some friends moving to San Francisco. Check out the rest of my photographs by clicking here:
Information about the show is available on Facebook.
Last year I had the pleasure of working on a book for legendary photographer ART KANE. Art was one of the most profoundly influential photographers of the twentieth century. A bold visionary, his work explored a number of genres - fashion, editorial, celebrity portraiture, travel, and nudes with an unrelenting and innovative eye. Kane developed a style that didn't shy away from strong color, eroticism and surreal humor.
From the original film, I scanned and restored all of the images included in this book. The project was organized and curated by Art’s son, Jonathan Kane and his wife Holly Anderson, a brilliant poet and lyricist. Jonathan is the original drummer for the experimental rock band SWANS, current photographer and photo editor, as well as a musician and a friend. We sat together for almost 12 months and worked on each image in the book, one by one, until he felt they represented what his dad would have originally envisioned.
The book is finally here. This stunning hardback edition from Reel Art Press is the first time Kane’s work has been collected into one comprehensive volume. Beautifully curated, it is a fitting tribute to one of photography’s most original and creative forces.
Visit Art Kane’s website or order the book from Amazon.
One of my photographs is featured in NO ECHO's recent interview with vocalist Tom Sheehan (Indecision / Most Precious Blood) . It's from a show at Kearney Irish Center in New Jersey, 2012. Thanks to Carlos at No Echo for showing my work!
