Jim Cummins – Legendary Rock Photographer

March 31, 2014 2:42 pm

Thursday, April 10th. 6-9PM. At Baboo Digital.

Baboo Gallery is proud to debut the limited edition works of award-winning photojournalist Jim Cummins. Many of Jim’s photographs of music legends, taken during the golden era of rock, have been seen as the covers of over 900 albums, many of which went Gold, Platinum, and Diamond, but never before have prints of Jim’s stunning photos been available to the public.

Walk into a visual time capsule that recreates a nostalgic era. 30×40 Chromogenic prints of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Miles Davis, and Ray Charles capture, vividly, some of the most important moments in music history.

Crowd around Janis Joplin as she sings on the Ed Sullivan Show, with an innocence that only Jim was able to capture. Stand alongside Jimi Hendrix as he records one of his biggest hits at the famed Record Plant Studio. Join the audience and dance to Ray Charles across the stage, as a stunning triple-exposure of Ray at the piano conveys the high-voltage energy of Ray Charles in performance. Stare eye to eye with Miles Davis, as he tips his hat to the present artist.

Come celebrate a legendary photographer and a genre that has remained alive through the spirit captured on film.
