Details:This first solo museum retrospective of Jay Blakesberg’s photography will take over four galleries at the Morris Museum, New Jersey’s only Smithsonian Affiliate. Jay’s photographic journey began in Clark, New Jersey in 1978, just 25 miles away from the Morris Museum. Borrowing his father’s Pentax Camera, Jay began photographing the bands he loved and the friends in his orbit. In his basement darkroom, he pumped out 8×10’s to thumbtack to his bedroom wall and share with friends, with the only goal to create his own personal memorabilia. Without knowing it then, these earliest photographs would become the foundation for Jay’s extensive archive. Suburban New Jersey in the 1970s was a time of just a few TV channels and radio stations that pumped out the soundtrack of our lives, and vinyl records that crackled day and night in Jay’s bedroom. These inspiring songs by artists Jay was beginning to photograph such as Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and The Grateful Dead, set Jay’s imagination free and put him on the path to document the musicians whose songs would become his first muse. At 16 years of age, Jay had his first photograph published in print, and at 17 was paid for the first time by The Aquarian Weekly (a free Weekly paper in New Jersey) for two images that ran with a review of a Grateful Dead concert. These were the first sparks that ignited what has now become a 44 year photography career shooting for every major magazine of the last 30 years, record companies, and directly for some of the most renowned musical artists of our time.
