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!
