Rock and Roll Eye – Photos by Greg Savalin – Sac Rock and Radio Museum, July 10

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Greg Savalin, Sacramento-based photographer, has documented music history for over 30 years. Through his rock and roll eye, Greg’s camera captures the essence, the passion, and the images of rock, blues and country performers. Whether he has to crouch in the orchestra pit, climb over bodies, provoke the performer, or dodge slam dancers and raving crowds, Greg Savalin does whatever is necessary to give the viewer the best seat in the house. These days, photographers are not allowed in concerts and, for the most part, if they survive security or have press credentials, they use digital photography. Thes photos were taken during a less organzed, more free atmosphere and most photo lovers will agree that nothing quite captures an image like a black and white photo developed from a negative in the dark room.

The selection of Savalin’s black and white rock and roll images exhibited here are the distillation of thousands of negatives taken of performers who played in Sacramento and the Bay Area in the punk, rock, and country music scene of the 1970s and 80s. These black and white negatives have been stored in the vault for over 25 years and the large format-photographs are printed especially for this Second Saturday show. Some of these artists are no longer alive, but they continue to live through these evocative images. Whether you look at Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, Mick and Keith, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Neil Young Muddy Waters, or a young Bruce Springsteen and Clarence Clemmons — prepare to be taken back to a time when you were younger, the musicians more beautiful, and adventures were waiting in every venue, club and ampitheater. These were cool fun times and a little mysterious, too. Come and experience the photographs of Greg Savalin at this unique venue. You will be astounded!
