This Is A Photograph Of Memphis
Collected photographic works while writing This Is A Photograph
Monday May 1 – Tuesday May 10
Kevin Morby presents This Is A Photograph Of Memphis at The Gallery at Ace Hotel Brooklyn from May 1-10. While temporarily living in Memphis and writing his soon to be released full-length album, This Is A Photograph, Morby took breaks to wander the city. The once vibrant epicenter of the downtown had taken on a haunted quality, and Morby sought to capture these surroundings on his Pentax PC35. In the evenings, he would return to his room and document his new ideas on a makeshift recording setup, with just his guitar and a microphone. This Is A Photograph Of Memphis captures the scenery surrounding Morby during this contemplative and prolific time while simultaneously introducing him as a talent behind the lens.
Kevin Morby is a Kansas City based singer/songwriter. With his seven acclaimed solo albums and myriad records of various collaborations, Morby has become a true musical auteur. His singular vision, evocative lyrics, and aptitude for catchy, dense songwriting has placed him firmly among the ranks of modern icons. Each Morby record possesses its own unique persona and explores intriguing themes and fertile terrain through shifting, focused textures and dexterous, dedicated skill. This Is A Photograph, Morby’s latest album, finds him making an Americana paean, a visceral life and death, blood on the canvas outpouring. The creatively invigorated songwriter has managed to align his finest songs, best vocal performances, most incisive lyrics, and his most lush arrangements to date.
This Is A Photograph is out May 13th on Dead Oceans.
