Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe’s latest photography exhibition “A Longer View”, will open at the Leica gallery in Boston, Massachusetts on September 13 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with an artist’s talk the following day, September 14, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
According to Blythe, the exhibit — which will run from September 13 to November 11, “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, and landscape shots of pristine natural beauty. These images, drawn from my travels across the world, complement and 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.
“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.”
The opening reception and artist’s talk are free. However, if you are planning to attend, please RSVP at this location. The photographs (all in editions of 10) will be available for sale, framed or just as prints.
