New York City – April 2014: An exhibition of work by legendary, New York City based photographer Danny Clinch will be held at the Fiorentini + Baker store and show room. The show will feature original photographs of some of the world’s most celebrated musical legends, including Iggy Pop, Ben Harper & Relentless 7, Patti Smith, The Black Keys, Pearl Jam and Rage Against the Machine – among others.
With a career spanning over 20 years, Clinch has photographed some of the world’s greatest music stars on locations in NYC and around the world. From Tupac Shakur to Bruce Springsteen – Clinch has captured them all in his original and unique fly-on-the-wall style, giving you a brief and rare insight into the life and character of the subject, immortalized in the image.
A devout music lover Clinch’s images epitomise the raw edge of the music scene a passion that appealed to fellow music lover, British born designer and founder of the fashion brand Fiorentini + Baker - Deborah Baker, prompting her to invite Clinch to exhibit at her flagship Mercer Street store and show room in New York City.
‘I’ve got to know Danny since spending time in NYC and I’ve always admired his work, explains the designer. He has photographed many of my musical heroes, so to have him exhibit in the New York store and showroom is a real honour.’
Clinch, also a film director, has been nominated for three Grammy awards and has published two books, while currently working on a third, detailing his life work. The exhibition will open with a cocktail party, followed by a special guest performance by Clinch’s own band the Tangiers Blues Band and a private view on 1st April 2014 from 7PM – 11PM at Fiorentini + Baker 54 Mercer Street, Soho, NYC.
All of the portraits will be available for sale and prices are on application.
