From 2002 to 2008 photographer and filmmaker Sam Erickson regularly documented My Morning Jacket as they steadily grew into one of the most acclaimed and influential bands of their generation. His efforts resulted in a stunning collection of images from the recording of the band’s last three studio albums: It Still Moves, Z, and Evil Urges, numerous live shots and the making of their CD/DVD Okonokos.
Beginning on May 22nd, the Morrison Hotel Gallery will show 21 of these images for a six-week exhibition. These will be hand-printed, archival shots from the film negatives, and will be available in limited editions. None of the images in the show were commissioned photographs; the majority have never before been viewed by the public. This also marks the first instance the Morrison Hotel Gallery has done a show on a band that is ascending, rather than reflecting on a career.
