Some of the best names in local music photography—live and portraiture—have combined forces to offer a rocking display of work featuring some of the biggest names in the biz alongside snaps of Portland faves like Ages and Ages, Menomena, Magic Mouth and The Builders and the Butchers.

Highlighting the work of six local photographers—Todd Cooper, Jeanné Ellenby, Peter Ellenby, Justin Kent, Jason Quigley and Alicia J. Rose—meet the artists behind the lens at the opening reception on Thursday, October 2 from 5 to 8pm while basking the glow of Bruce Springsteen, John Lee Hooker, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, Nine Inch Nails, Bob Mould, Janelle Monae, St. Vincent, Spoon, The Flaming Lips, A-Trak and the Queen of Bounce herself, Big Freedia as well as numerous others.

Now, peep a small preview of the different styles—"from state of the art DSLR cameras [to] plastic toy cameras and even smart phone apps"—you can expect to see under the Wonder starting on October 2.
