“It is an amazing feeling to see my art occupy the same space as the legendary photographs of my musical heroes.”
Milford portrait photographer, John Mollura, has been a fan of rock and roll since finding his uncles’ vinyl collections in his grandmother’s attic in the late 1980s.
John’s photograph was one of thirty images selected, out of hundreds of national submissions, chosen to be a part of the Biggs Art Museum “Front Row Center – Icons of Rock, Blues, and Soul” exhibit, featuring the concert photography of Larry Hulst.
Larry Hulst was likely the person behind the camera who created the photographs that come to mind when you think of the most famous rock musicians in history. The Dover, Delaware exhibit features Hulst’s captivating concert photographs of the biggest names in rock, such as The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and The Grateful Dead, just to name a few.
Mollura’s image in the exhibit captured the moment when Dayne Jordan (the MC for the legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff) took flight midsong amidst a downpour. The spotlight was laser focused on Dayne as he seemingly defied gravity under the purple stage lighting in the intense rain at a packed outdoor summer show.
“It was a once-in-a-lifetime capture,” Mollura said, “as soon as I clicked the shutter, I knew it was going to be epic.”
John Mollura’s photography studio is in Milford where he specializes in creating empowering and creative portraits of his clients.
The exhibit is on display at the Bigg’s Art Museum in Dover until June 19th.
