Photographer Peter Ellenby Debuts New Exhibition at Noise Pop 2012: 15 Years of Death Cab for Cutie and John Vanderslice, in Photos
January 30, 2012
Photographer Peter Ellenby has been taking portraits of Death Cab for Cutie and John Vanderslice for over 15 years. Now as part of Noise Pop’s 20th Anniversary, Ellenby’s photo exhibit DC/VJ will be on display, featuring portraits depicting the progression of the musicians’ celebrated careers as well as Ellenby’s own stylistic progression.
DC/JV will be housed at sponsor San Franpsycho’s offices located at 1314 Grant (between Vallejo and Green). The opening reception will be on Thursday, February 2nd from 5–9pm with an additional festival reception Thursday, February 23rd from 5–7pm.
While discussing the exhibit and the festival, which he has photographed the past 18 years and counting, Ellenby stated:
The Noise Pop Festival is very near and dear to me and I wanted this show to represent what I see are the best parts of the Festival. . . The fact that a bond also exists between Death Cab and John is fantastic as well. JV is like the glue that holds SF’s music scene together and Death Cab represent what a great stage Noise Pop has been for bands getting a shot during the Festival.
John Vanderslice will be playing Noise Pop this year, co-headlining Bottom of the Hill with Thao Nguyen on February 23rd.
