More in the World of Rock Photography

posted by on June 24 at 15:45 PM

Speaking of rock photography and David Belisle, Mr. Belisle also has some photos hanging in the show Accidents Will Happen at Belle & Wissell, Co. (6014 12th Ave S). Also featured: Jini Dellaccio, Charles Peterson, Curt Doughty, Lance Mercer, David Belisle, and Morgan Keuler. You no doubt recognize Curt and Morgan’s names, their work is often being featured here on Line Out (Curt shot the Weezer show recently, and Morgan shot Matt & Kim at Neumo’s).


Here’s a little more info via press release:

Belle & Wissell is pleased to present “Accidents Will Happen: Stories from Rock Photography,” an exhibition examining the evolution of music photography in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Organized by Belle & Wissell resident curators Gabe Kean and Marq Dean, together with EMP curator Jacob McMurray and photographer Curt Doughty, “Accidents Will Happen” explores the creative process of masters of the genre through video, photographs and digital media.

Among the participating artists in “Accidents Will Happen” is Jini Dellaccio. Her seminal work in the early 1960s with influential Northwest proto-punk pioneers the Sonics, Wailers, the Daily Flash and others set the bar for later generations of rock photographers. On display will be her stunning photos from the Sonics “Boom” album sessions. Currently 91 years old Dellacio has, until recently, remained a reclusive, unheralded genius. Also included in the exhibition are Charles Peterson, Curt Doughty and Lance Mercer, whose singular styles helped define and document Seattle’s “grunge” era in the late 1980s and 90s. They will be joined by their younger contemporaries David Belisle and Morgan Keuler. An oral history video captures the artists’ passion for our region’s rich contributions to rock ‘n’ roll and provides a fascinating window into their approach to music photography, as well as their individual techniques.

The show runs through July 13; gallery hours are Friday and Saturday, 4-8 pm and Sunday, July 13, 10 am-5 pm.
