The iconic Morrison Hotel Gallery is the home of some of music’s most notable photographs. For the month of March (8th-31st) they featured “Rise of a Generation” celebrating a collection of images during the “grunge” music period. Meghan and Jeff were lucky enough to visit the New York exhibit and snap some cool pics of the experience. For our monthly photography post, we are going to highlight some of the photographers who have their work displayed in the gallery that worked with Soundgarden and Chris Cornell. Let’s put some faces to names to pay tribute and give recognition to their historical snaps of our favorite band.
Karen was there for it all in Seattle. With camera in hand, she was amongst the sweaty crowd, snapping photos from the pit. A handful of her photographs of Soundgarden are some of the most seen maybe ever, especially the ones that ended up in print back when music magazines were still around.
Her Instagram accounts also boasts much of her photography work with other bands as well, so make sure to give her a follow. Click here to see the Soundgarden photos Karen took that were at the Morrison Hotel Gallery exhibit.

This Seattleite’s name probably rings a bell. Back in the early days of the internet, his pictures were perhaps the first ones that popped up after searching the band’s name. Now his photographs are historical, representing that era of music and the sound of a generation that will never be forgotten.
