Goodbye, Roseland

03 Mar 2015, Posted by Amy V. Cooper in News, Photography

I was really sad to find photos of the Roseland Ballroom demolition today. I have so many memories of that venue. I saw my first NYC concert there – Jeff Buckley, I think it was 1995.

The Fiona Apple incident.

Iggy Pop.

Marilyn Manson.

I photographed dozens of live shows in the Roseland pit. I will not miss that pit, though. The stage was taller than I,  many a crotch were documented…

Band of Brothers

28 Feb 2015, Posted by Amy V. Cooper in Art, Photography

In 1996 (shortly before I left for New York) I photographed Four Square. These friends, all brothers, made up a melodic-punk/hardcore band in Baton Rouge.

This film was hidden in a box for almost 20 years without being given its due. I’m mesmerized by the detail in the dirt under the fingernails, the guitar string ends, the splintered drumsticks.
