“NERVOUS” by Blake Yard

A staple of the Detroit BMX scene, Blake Yard is rarely seen not holding a handlebar or camera, maaybe a can of beer. I’ve never heard anyone mutter a single negative word about him and I’d be surprised if he wasn’t voted “most friendly” in high school. NERVOUS is a collection of 21 photos shot at local music venues that showcase the revealing moments and emotional body language you’d be quick to miss as a mere concertgoer. Harnessing dramatic stage lighting, Blake uses a variety of lenses to create lyrical imagery, capturing a sight while also exhibiting a sound. Although it might be awhile until we all can experience the magic of live music again, this book serves as a presage of the circle pits and singalongs to come. Limited edition stickers will be included while supplies last. $7 shipped in The States!

Let’s face it BMX and photography go hand in hand. So many riders pick up cameras and are able to produce quality photographs. So I was extremely excited to find some of Sandy Carson‘s personal work up on one of my favorite photo blogs this morning. The series documents concert goers on the front lines of concerts and was shot over the course of 8 years. Check out the rest of the gallery and interview here.
