“Suspect Device” opens this Friday, March 6, at Leica Store DC’s gallery with 20 photographs by Exposed alum Chris Suspect. The images in the exhibit are part of Suspect’s eponymous photobook which documents the last four years of D.C.’s longstanding hardcore music scene.
Chris kindly shared this video with us, telling us it will appear in-store at the gallery, except without the accompanying music. We asked him to tell us how the video came about:
I wanted it to represent the photography but also to put the work into context for people wondering what the images are about by using parts of Alec MacKaye’s foreword from the book. Alec really nailed the feelings and thoughts I wanted to impart with the photographs with his words. He did a great job and I think he deserves a lot of recognition for the effort he put forth as well. The song in the video is “Graveyard” by The Suspects, a band I played in during the early to late 90’s. Grave Mistake records will be re-releasing our first record we put out over 20 years ago this year.
