The Birdwatcher’s Companion.
Katherine Fahey asked me to photograph the opening of The Birdwatcher’s Companion show at the metro gallery. This is a series of portraits of the musicians that collaborated with kathy on the project. See more images from the night here.
The Birdwatcher’s Companion, opened January 17th at the Metro Gallery. The exhibit showcases these paintings. Gallery goers can listen through headphones to the songs that inspired Fahey. For their part, the musicians have written seven new songs as inspired by their favorite work of Fahey’s, which are available for listening. All six songwriters performed at the opening reception on January 17th 2009.
As a poster and print maker, Fahey has established working relationships—as well as close friendships—with many of Baltimore’s finest musicians. Songwriter contributors to The Birdwatcher’s Companion include Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack of Wye Oak, Caleb Stine, James Sarsgard of Noble Lake, Katie Feild, and Bob Keal of Small Sur.
The Birdwatcher’s Companion, music and art, the closest of cohorts.
