STEFANKO & CLINCH IN SOHO
“From Darkness to a Dream” shows Springsteen then and now,
opening October 14 at Morrison Hotel Gallery
Surely you know by now that HBO will be airing the Thom Zimny’s Springsteen documentary, The Promise: The Making of Darkness on the Edge of Town, on October 7. You may also be aware of a certain little record release coming on November 16. What you may not know is what’s happening in between these two momentous events, beginning October 14 in Soho, NYC.
Clearly, the planets have aligned to create a rare sequence of events.
For the first time ever, photographers Frank Stefanko and Danny Clinch will mount a two-man showing of some of their best Bruce Springsteen photographs at Morrison Hotel Gallery. Their show is titled “From Darkness to a Dream” and reflects a “then and now” look into the life of this amazing artist over a span of 30 years.
For the first time ever, Frank Stefanko will be showing his album cover photographs from both Darkness on the Edge of Town and The River. These images, photographed over 30 years ago, have never before been presented (look Ma, no type!), let alone available for sale. Frank will be showing additional images, some never seen before, from his Darkness on the Edge of Townsessions.
For the first time ever, Danny Clinch will be showing many new, exquisite, contemporary photographs of Springsteen, including images from his Working on a Dream and Devils & Dust sessions.
The collaboration between these two Jersey boys, Stefanko and Clinch, is particularly incredible because although their photographs were taken decades apart, they work beautifully together, each emitting an essence of mood and soul.
