Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Announces His Second Photography Exhibit

Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe, who has been posting his exceptional photography on his Instagram account for years, will once again have his work on display live and in the flesh. The opening reception for his new show, “A Longer View,” will be held at the Leica Gallery Boston on September 13th (from 6pm to 9pm) and will remain up through November 11th. An artist’s talk will take place the day after the reception, September 14th, from 5pm to 7pm.

The exhibition will feature photography centered around the environment, namely humankind’s disrespectful treatment of it, a topic on which Randy has had a lot to say over the years. Here’s Randy’s own description of the show:

“The exhibit… will be centered on three themes I have shot over the last few years: pictures of environmentally-focused protests, images of man’s detrimental effect on the environment, & landscape shots of pristine natural beauty. These images, drawn from my travels across the world, compliment & contrast each other to state an evidence-based premise: people are fed up with the cavalier disregard with which we treat our planet (our only home), there are clearly visible reasons for this anger (everywhere you look, if you open your eyes), and (thankfully) there are still wild places left to nurture and protect. Politics, personal beliefs, religious inclinations- none of that will matter one bit to our descendants if we don’t leave them a home capable of sustaining life. Things have to to change, and this change has to begin NOW.

“From the artist’s statement: ‘It is my hope that the intersection of these images of dissent, waste, and beauty will encourage each viewer to take ‘a longer view’ and consider their impact on the environment— I am trying to do the same. Perhaps together we can begin to reject the devastating environmental shortsightedness that has been the hallmark of human expansion in the modern age. – D. Randall Blythe’

“The opening reception and artist’s talk are FREE- however, if you are planning to attend, please RSVP at: WWW.LEICAGALLERYBOSTON/EVENTS/. The photographs (all in editions of 10) will be available for sale, framed or just as prints, and umm… those are NOT free. Printing is being done by the amazing @digitalsilverimaging in Boston, who handled my last show– their work is EXQUISITE and of the highest quality. Thanks to @leicacamerausa and @leicagalleryboston for all the support! The Gallery is located at: 74 Arlington St, Boston, MA 02116. See y’all in September in Beantown!

With Blythe having participated in the Standing Rock protests in North Dakota in 2016, it’s a good bet some photos from that endeavor will be included in the show.

Blythe previously exhibited his work in NYC in 2015.

RSVP here if you plan to attend.

I’m very excited to announce that my latest photography exhibition, “A Longer View”, will be opening at the Leica Gallery Boston on Sept. 13, 2018, from 6 pm to 9 pm, with an artist’s talk the following day, Sept. 14, from 5 pm to 7 pm.
