Annie Lennox vintage photograph to be exhibited at the “Out of the Darkness & Into the Light: Music Photography Collective” at Smithville Mansion Annex Gallery in New Jersey

A photograph of Annie Lennox taken by photographer Sandra C. Davis taken on the Touch tour in Philadelphia 1984 is now on display at the Smithville Mansion Annex Gallery in New Jersey.

Sandra C. Davis is a fine art photographer and educator specializing in alternative process photographic techniques.

She says in the exhibition catalogue “My wife and I published B-Side Magazine, an alternative music magazine, from 1986-1996. The invitation to exhibit my concert photography gave me the opportunity to dig deep into the thousands of images I captured on film during my years photographing for B-side Magazine. In the process, I discovered between the time I photographed musicians and performances and now, my vision has changed. I see the compositions in a different way. It has become less about the performer and more about the experience. This body of work represents a more visceral interpretation of my experience capturing this split-second world of ever-changing performances”

Out of the Darkness and into the Light is a collective exhibit of twelve professional music photographers from around the Tri-State area. 

Lights dim, and the audience erupts with a deafening roar as the band walks out of fog and darkness. The crowd thrusts forward, and the energy rises like a storm surge, bodies lift into the air and crash down in front of the stage. Poised in the center of all the madness is a photographer capturing the split-second world that lives within the flicker of light and shadow. This exhibit will allow you to glimpse through the lens of a select few that brave the chaos in the crowd.

These photographers offer you a glimpse through their lens, capturing the many different genres and styles of live music.
