Jeffrey Moose Gallery is pleased to feature photographer Steve Schneider, who will celebrate the publication of his new book, The First Three Songs. The exhibition will run through February 26th. Mr. Schneider will join the reception on First Friday. The First Three Songs: Rock and Roll at 125th of a Second is a 220-page coffee table publication documenting Mr. Schneider’s work over fifty years of Rock and Roll photography. The book is the result of Mr. Schneider’s efforts to organize and document his five decades of shooting pictures at concerts. Many shots were published from color negatives the photographer had not seen since he shot them years ago and only discovered with extra time on his hands because of the pandemic. The gallery is located at 181 Winslow Way East, Suite F.
