June 8 – July 13, 2013
The Kopeikin Gallery will be showing “World Records,” a collection of photographs, by Kai Schaefer.
In his series “World Records” Schaefer draws from Rolling Stone Magazine’s “The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time,” photographing the original vinyl pressings of iconic record albums throughout music history on the turntables they would have first been played on.
“If you’re lucky, at the right time you come across music that is not only ‘great,’ or ‘interesting,’ or ‘incredible,’ or ‘fun,’ but actually sustaining. Though some elusive but tangible process, a piece of music cuts through all defenses and makes sense of every fear and desire you bring to it.”
– Greil Marcus, Punk in Pop Music, 1977 – 1992
