Taylor Crothers ’93 Curates Pop-up Exhibition of Dave Mathews Band Photographs

— by on May 3rd, 2016

One of the first bands Taylor Crothers covered as a freelance photographer was the Dave Mathews Band, when it was new to the music scene in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the early 1990s.

Taylor, who graduated from Washington and Lee University in 1993, is curating a pop-up show featuring his work and that of some of the band’s other favorite photographers to celebrate DMB’s 25th anniversary. Assisting him is Jeanne Rene Barousse ’12.

The retrospective, a preview to the exhibition’s official opening in the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York City in mid-June, will be held May 7 at 722 Preston Ave., in Charlottesville. An opening reception the day before is from 6 to 9 p.m.

As well as following DMB, Taylor has worked with PHISH and Zac Brown Band. Recently he has had acclaimed photo shoots with Rolling Stone, AC/DC, Green Day, Adam Lambert, and JP Chrissie and the Fairground Boys. He has also covered Bonnaroo, ROTHBURY, Mile High Music Festival, Vegoose, and “Austin City Limits.”
