Trever Long is a photographer known for his portraitures and live event images. He has a background in illustration and painting, which influences his approaches. In the spring of 2010, Trever teamed up with author Jeff Milo to self-publish the book Detroit: Now
, which focuses on locally based artists, musicians, and performers. Long's picture of Silverghost is at bottom left.
Last, but certainly not least, we come to our own Marvin Shaouni
. A self-taught bassist, drummer and guitar player, Shaouni has performed in Detroit bands Caelum Bliss, Life of Crime and the Blueflowers. His photography has also been featured in exhibitions including Pulse Contemporary Art Fair (Los Angeles), Live from Detroit at Fred Torres Collaborations (NYC) and the Detroit Historical Museum.
The three photographers show their music-related work beginning this Friday, March 30 at Whitdel Arts Gallery, 1250 Hubbard in Southwest Detroit. The opening is at 6 p.m. And you're invited. Say you're coming here
