Live From New York…Damian Greene Published in Blog
A few months ago I was fortunate to interview Saturday Night Live’s esteemed—if somewhat unknown—photographer Mary Ellen Matthews. The resulting Digital Photo Pro article called attention to her phenomenal body of work, and I noted many regular folks (i.e. non-photographer-types) who came out of the woodwork to say they’d always loved those photos on the show and were glad to meet the woman who made them. Well now Mary Ellen is getting even more recognition with a retrospective of her work at the former CBGB rock club and current John Varvatos clothing store in New York’s Bowery neighborhood. After a decade of toiling in relative obscurity (after all, her photos aren’t seen in print so often as they’re seen during commercial breaks—with no room for a credit), it’s great to see this phenomenal photographer receiving so much well-deserved attention. Read about the show at the Wall Street Journal, and check out more of her work at her Jed Root web site.
