IN MY EYES | Jim Saah

IN MY EYES | Jim Saah

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: September 7, 7–9 PM

EXHIBITION: September 7 – September 14, 2024

IN MY EYES features impressive (and never-before-seen) photos of punk and hardcore legends such as: Fugazi, Minor Threat, Void, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Dead Kennedys, Jawbox, Government Issue, The Faith, IronCross and more. But Saah’s musical palette wasn’t just confined to punk rock, as evidenced by the inclusion of The Cramps, The Pixies, Lou Reed, Guided by Voices, Fishbone, Wilco, to name a few. 

Saah vividly captured the essence of a time and a place—with all of punk's original passion, energy and total abandon still very much intact within his frame. Per Saah, "The punk music I found changed the way I look at the world. Ultimately, punk music gave me the ability to think for myself and let music and art open my mind."

The first edition of a hefty book of these photographs, IN MY EYES: PHOTOGRAPHS 1982–1997, was published by Cabin 1 Books, that sold out almost immediately. A second edition was released in February of this year.

JIM SAAH's career in photography started when he documented the punk scene in Washington, DC in the early 1980’s. Arts and entertainment has been the mainstay of his career. Photographing for the likes of the Washington Post to Rolling Stone. His photographs have been featured on many books and records. Two highlights were the best selling-book, Our Band Could Be Your Life and the cover of Fugazi’s Repeater record. Jim has also worked extensively in film and video. He’s been a shooter on several films about the band Wilco as well as being principle photographer on two feature films, Salad Days: A Decade of Punk In Washington, D.C. and CREEM: America's Only Rock & Roll Magazine. Photography and music have been his lifetime muses.
