An Evening with Guster and Jon Sarkin

Last Friday I had the amazing opportunity of shooting a sold out show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, featuring the music of Guster and the art of folk artist Jon Sarkin.  I have been a huge Guster fan since the early 2000's, so this was a bit of a dream come true for me.  While I was unfamiliar with Sarkin's work, throughout the evening I quickly became a fan of his as well.  I also had the pleasure of meeting a number of interesting people, including Spectrum co-chairs Morgan Holzer and Chris Gorman; string players K Ishibashi and Dana Leong; and Amy Ellis Nutt, a writer for the Newark Star Ledger.  All in all a pretty unforgettable evening - one I hope I was able to capture adequately in photos!

Below are some of my best shots from the night.  (I'm using Flickr slideshows for the time being, until I can upgrade my Photoshelter account.)
