Photographer Steve Schneider presents his Rock & Roll photographs in Seattle's Triple Door and Musiquarium, 216 Union St, Seattle, courtesy of Jeffrey Moose Gallery, for the months of July and August. Reception: Friday, July 11, 5:30-7 P.M.
Schneider has been shooting live music for over forty years, covering artists from the Bay area's psychedelic scene to Seattle's Grunge explosion, including Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. Mr. Schneider has turned a fondness for Rock and Roll into a lifetime of concert documentation. Beginning with a 1973 shot of Neil Young and Graham Nash in Santa Barbara and continuing most recently with shots of Merle Haggard, Emily Lou Harris and Rodney Crowell at St. Michel Winery, his catalogue includes Rock legends from several decades frozen in revealing and dramatic action. Artists include Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, Pete Townsend, Tom Petty, Merle Haggard, Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, The Grateful Dead and many, many more. Most were shot in the Northwest, Mr. Schneider's residence since 1979.
His close association with The Grateful Dead goes back to the mid 70's when the band first allowed him stage access; his photos have been published on their CDs & DVDs.
Mr. Schneider's career has included stints working for UPI, Gannett News Service, Reuters, and Sipa Press as well as long term commitments to corporate assignments and conventions. He also travels annually with several associations such as the National League of Cities, American Thoracic Society, and National Association for Independent Schools.
His work has appeared in various publications including TIME magazine, which, after Jerry Garcia's death in 1995, ran Mr. Schneider's shot of Garcia at his last Seattle concert.
