Kevin Morby presents
This Is A Photograph Of Memphis 

Collected photographic works while writing This Is A Photograph 

Monday May 1 – Tuesday May 10

Kevin Morby presents This Is A Photograph Of Memphis at The Gallery at Ace Hotel Brooklyn from May 1-10. While temporarily living in Memphis and writing his soon to be released full-length album, This Is A Photograph, Morby took breaks to wander the city. The once vibrant epicenter of the downtown had taken on a haunted quality, and Morby sought to capture these surroundings on his Pentax PC35. In the evenings, he would return to his room and document his new ideas on a makeshift recording setup, with just his guitar and a microphone. This Is A Photograph Of Memphis captures the scenery surrounding Morby during this contemplative and prolific time while simultaneously introducing him as a talent behind the lens.

The creatively invigorated songwriter has managed to align his finest songs, best vocal performances, most incisive lyrics, and his most lush arrangements to date.
