Among the growing number of rock photographers in the Los Angeles area, there are only several whose works are instantly recognizable…. and Dustin Jack is one of those photographers.
With twenty plus years of experience in the fine art of photography, Dustin has developed an interesting style that makes his works stand out from the rest. Treating every photograph as a stand-alone piece of art, Jack gives a lot of attention to every detail. Bright, vibrant, and sharp colors that make the subjects look extremely realistic have become Jack’s trademark. His photos have graced the pages of top publications such as Rolling Stone, Modern Drummer, among others and have been featured by big name musicians and companies. Dustin’s most notable works include photos of Motley Crue, DJ Ashba, Rob Zombie, John 5, Daughtry, Phil X, and Zakk Wylde.
Teaming up with clothing designer Cody Varona and artist Pete Kasprzak, Dustin Jack held an exhibition of original artwork at the rock n roll boutique Forgotten Saints LA on Saturday, March 14.
Fifteen fine art prints, that according to Dustin, most accurately represent his work, were selected for the event.
Collaborative results of Dustin’s works and the work of talented artist Pete Kasprzak were also put up for sale during the event.
Shortly after 8 P.M., the boutique started filling up with guests who quickly bought up many of the arts pieces.
Among friends, family, and those who came to purchase the artwork, there were several of Jack’s featured subjects whose photos were hanging on the walls of the boutique or, at some point, have been photographed by Dustin.
Musicians Phil X (Bon Jovi), Glen Sobel (Alice Cooper), Ace Von Johnson (Faster Pussycat), Jacob Bunton (Adler’s Appetite, Lynam), Marty O’Brien (Lita Ford) were all there to support Dustin Jack.
With most pieces sold by the end of the night, it’s safe to say that this might happen again, and if it does, it definitely will be another great event to attend. Here is what Dustin has to say about the possibility of this happening in the future.
