Yesterday was the opening reception of “DREAM & DRIVE” at Milk Studios. The photo project and book has been nine years in the making ; the result of an on-going relationship between The Kills and Kenneth Cappello. I attended the Q&A session in the early afternoon and listened to Kenneth Cappello, Jamie Hince, Alison Mosshart give insights into the last nine years of touring, rock&roll and countless photos taken in between.
I’ve been a fan of Kenneth Cappellos work since I first came across him years ago and it was inspiring to hear him speak on the experience of photographing The Kills for almost a decade. I appreciate photographers who are able to impose their own personality onto their work and the photos at this exhibition showed that Kenneth did just that. It was apparent that the photodocumentation on display was shot from the lens of a dear friend, not an outsider, and sometimes that makes all the difference.
