Unprecedented Anthology Show by Photographer & Art Director Josh Cheuse, Featuring Iconic but Rarely Exhibited Images of the Clash, Joe Strummer, the Beastie Boys, Madonna, and others!
The Morrison Hotel Gallery is excited to be showing, Grooving Years,
a "greatest hits, B-sides, and never-before-released"-style anthology
by photographer, noted art director, and New Yorker, Josh Cheuse. As the
description implies, the exhibit will feature iconic images, seldom
seen pictures, and never displayed photographs of the Clash, Joe
Strummer, the Beastie Boys, Madonna, and other landmark artists.
will be up at the MHG's Soho loft located at 116 Prince Street in New York. The exhibit opens to the public on
The exhibit's title, Grooving Years,
is a tribute to a note Joe Strummer once sent to Cheuse, that said:
"Thanks for all the grooving years!" The sentiment is a direct window
into how the music community at large views Cheuse and his work.
Award-wining director, actor, composer, and screenwriter Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Night On Earth, Down By Law)
says: "In the world of rockers, rappers, teds, toasters and graffiti
masters, Josh Cheuse is primary Agent Provocateur. It's a gift to have
these photographs and to see these moments through the eyes of this
photographer." Cheuse's photography is reverent and unobtrusive, lending
his images anthemic warmth. Cheuse says:"Everyone has a camera now, but
not everyone is a photographer. It's not enough just to say you were
In addition to breathtaking images of the Clash, Joe Strummer, the Beastie Boys, and Madonna, the exhibit will features images of a diverse array of legendary musicians, including Oasis, Run DMC, Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Buddy Guy, and MGMT.
As an Associate Design director at Sony Music Entertainment, Cheuse has
a profound sense of visual flow and will curate the show with
compelling narrative dynamics. The Grooving Years exhibit is
also sure to bring forth a good party vibe, complete with a guest DJ,
Cheuse's notable posse, and T-shirts and keepsake badges.
Cheuse was born in New York City. His career began earnestly and
accidently when, in 1981, he used the payphone at his high school to
call The Clash at Electric Ladyland Studios and asked to photograph the
band. That fateful moment eventually led to a myriad of opportunities: a
full scholarship for photography to the School of Visual Arts in New
York, a chance to hit the road with Big Audio Dynamite, and gigs
shooting videos for Joe Strummer, and B.A.D. Soon, Cheuse began
designing merchandise and sleeve artwork, and shooting video with an
early portable Sony camera. His work with his friends the Beastie Boys
and his work documenting of the hip-hop and reggae scenes have appeared
in publications such as SPIN, Rolling Stone, Musician, and Time Out.
1993 until the present, Cheuse has been an art director at Sony Music,
creating packaging and websites for artists including Bob Dylan, David
Bowie, Miles Davis, Rod Stewart and Tony Bennett, while still finding
time to go on the road to photograph his favorite groups like Oasis, and
The Black Crowes. After his friend Joe Strummer's untimely death in
2002, Cheuse directed a poignant video tribute for Joe's version of
"Redemption Song." In 2007, Cheuse's first book of photography, Rockers Galore was published by Stussy Books, along with a line of T-shirts using images from the book. His work has been featured at the Who Shot Rock
photography exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum, and in exhibits in Tokyo,
Paris, and Moscow. This July Cheuse's work as compiled by Mike D of The
Beastie Boys will be featured in Monster Children magazine
issue #43. Cheuse currently lives across the river In Jersey City, NJ
with his wife, actress Cara Seymour, their son Minalu and cats Riff and
