Photographer Joey Wharton & His Magical Music Tour

by | Aug 22, 2017 | PHOTOGRAPHY

When looking back over any great music scene, there are a handful of brilliant documentarians that bring that mystique. Like Rolling Stone’s first photographer Baron Wolman or David Godlis at the birth of punk, local Joey Wharton is capturing music now in a way that no one else is. Using a combination of self taught techniques and in-camera photo experiments, Wharton is creating a stand out portfolio in a sea of point-n-click photographers across town. Only time will tell how it all plays out.
