The Quotes Unplugged Single Launch, 29th April 2011, The Firestation Arts Centre
This is one of the things I have done that I am most proud of, The Quotes, are the real thing and I was very lucky they gave me their single launch for the first album to produce. Joe Atkins and Terry Tiffin, who did the lighting and the set design, excelled themselves to produce a phenomenal atmosphere. The photographers that came along that day, Gill Aspel (featured here) Dean Feltimo and Marek Sekora gave unconditionally of their talents, and the support from the staff at the venue was terrific. Hannah Masters-Waage does not hold back in her review - it truly was a night to say “I was there”.
When your evening ends with an ingenious laser-light show beamed across a river, accompanied by two electronic violinists on podiums, exploding into a climactic Fireworks display you know you are at Henley Festival.
Pete Eckert is a totally blind person. But through his photography, he proves that he IS a visual person, he just can’t see.
Pete was the Grand Prize recipient of Artists Wanted: Exposure 2008, an international photography competition, and was awarded $2,008 with a formal reception at Leo Kesting Gallery in New York City on Thursday August 7, 2008.
Artists Wanted is proud to present this truly inspiring portrait of the artist.
