MATTHEW DINKINS – The essence of nostalgia permeates these Polaroid portraits as memory and emotional tonality intermingle and approach a harmonic fuzz. Captured mugshot style via Polaroid Spectra previously owned by the Berkeley Police Department. Matt Dinkins was born in 1975. His first memory of television was Ronald Reagan’s inauguration parade. His first memory of not-television was deciding to cross the street without parental supervision. He has other memories, too.
BILL DANIEL: TRI-X NOISE BOOK RELEASE: 3 decades of subterranean countercultural hijinks are recorded on black and white film. Beginning with early the 80s Texas skatepunk scene, the book is a sprawling visual journal of a life lived on the road and after dark. Punk shows high and low, crusty experimental cinemas, freight train adventures, Mission School graffiti, impossibly obscure house shows, and art exhibits in the shadowy margins— it’s a mash up of subcultural documentation, from San Francisco to Shreveport, from Texas to Braddock Pennsylvania, a flash-lit scrapbook of an invisible vanguard— all shot on Tri-X film.
RALPH WHITE: Ralph E. White is a musician from Austin, Texas who has drawn inspiration from traditional blues, old-time country, rock, African and Cajun music, among other traditions. He principally plays banjo, fiddle, accordion, guitar, kalimba and mbira. He was a founding member of the innovative, influential,and truly great Austin trio the Bad Livers, formed in 1990.
