With the prevalence of digital cameras, everyone thinks they're a great rock photographer these days. But local gal Sandy Kim
takes pretty killer shots of musicians, far removed from the stage setting. (Her work reminds me a little of Ryan McGinley
She's gotten a ton of exposure this year, as one band she took stunning press shots for, Girls
, took off internationally. Her collection also includes images of Hunx and His Punx
and others from that scene.
Tonight Kim has a solo show at Ever Gold
gallery (441 O'Farrell st. btw Taylor & Jones) that also marks the release of her photo book on Unpiano
. The opening kicks off at 6 p.m., and if you stick around long enough, you never know who could show up to perform a couple tunes live.
