Bergamot Station

My favorite exhibit at Bergamot Station was the collection of Music/Rock and Roll photography. One of my favorite photographers in the exhibit was Mark Seliger, who captured dramatic portraits of iconic musicians like Johnny Cash, Kurt Cobain, and Willie Nelson in large format film. I was particularly drawn to the detail in the prints, as well as the dynamic level of tones. 

My favorite print was Don Hunstein’s photograph of Bob Dyland and Suze, New York 1960. The photo perfectly captures the moment; Dyland and Suze briskly walking through the New York winter air, with cars from the sixties on either side of the couple. Hunstein shoots from below, and it looks like Bob and Suze don’t even see him as they’re approaching closely.
