Monica McGivern's Lake Worth Photo Project Unveiling
A behind-the-scenes shot of the guys from Blond Fuzz during one of Monica McGivern's shoots.
To see the burgeoning creativity on our sandy shores
culminate in the Lake Worth-It Festival is an awesome thing -- and with photographer
music and the visual arts. The first local Lake Worth show McGivern saw was at Bryant Park, the
location of the festival. The 40 photos of Lake Worth-based musicians she'll
be unveiling Saturday are black-and-white and never-before-seen. "When the festival was
announced I knew I needed to do something special to honor these musicians,"
Having already shot a bunch of their live shows and promo work, she
invited the musicians to be photographed through Facebook. Steve Rullman caught
on to help promote her project to the bands and eventually made it part of the
entire event. With the help of
fellow photographer Daniel Millay assisting in production, she "managed to do 40 professional portraits in a span of two months. I wanted to document that they were the people that help the
energy of this community right now."
Eventually these portraits, along with photos of local shows, will be in
a book of her work. "I am very grateful to have met some incredibly talented
people that make up this scene...You can feel the excitement just by being in the
presence of someone who is living what they love."
McGivern will also have a live photo booth set up so you can
get your picture taken, too. If you can't make it to the show, the
project will be available for online viewing on Sunday, August 8th,
