SPRINGSTEEN PHOTOGRAPHER TO APPEAR IN DUBLIN FOR ONE NIGHT EXHIBITION
Hundreds of Bruce Springsteen fans and art collectors are set to head to Dublin this autumn, to meet the man who has been responsible for photographing Springsteen and his band for the last sixteen years, and to have prints personally signed.
Off Beat Lounge are bringing a collection of limited edition Bruce Springsteen photography by his tour photographer Jo Lopez to Dublin for a one off evening exhibition on Thursday 15th October 2015, in what is the first exhibition of his Springsteen collection ever to tour the UK and Ireland.
The event’s being hosted at the Harley Davidson showroom on the Red Cow Retail Centre, Ballymount in Dublin, giving collectors and Springsteen fans the chance to view the ‘Man Behind The Man’ exhibition….twelve limited edition prints of Bruce in concerts around the world. The exhibition was given it’s name after legendary saxophonist Clarence Clemens witnessed Jo at work. Seeing him poised a few feet behind Bruce at gigs around the world, trying to capture his every move, Clarence aptly labelled Jo ‘The Man Behind the Man.’
As well as touring with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band for sixteen years, Jo Lopez has also photographed rock legends such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blondie and Black Sabbath, and was the photographer behind the Springsteen image that’s considered to be one of Rolling Stone magazine’s most iconic cover photos in its forty year history.
These hugely sought after rare and highly collectable Bruce Springsteen prints are limited to just one hundred copies per image, in a variety of size options, and all signed by Jo Lopez himself. It’s the first time Jo has exhibited his Springsteen work in an exhibition tour of this type, which is why it’s drawing fans from across Europe. Off Beat Lounge are also proud to be supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust with a donation being made to the charity from the sale of each print.
Anyone wishing to attend the exhibition night should email email@example.com to request a place on the complimentary guest list. There is no charge for entrance tickets, although places must be pre-booked.
The Off Beat Lounge gallery is based near Norwich in Norfolk, and has one of the world’s largest collections of rare, limited edition fine art album covers, music-related art and photography.
If you would like to attend the exhibition night, which commences at 6.30pm on Thursday 15th October 2015 at the Harley Davidson showroom in Ballymount, Dublin, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Photo and interview opportunities will be available.
