Photos of Nick Zinner’s photos by G.
Nick Zinner at Anastasia Photo in New York. Now showing through May 31, 2011
Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist and co-founder Nick Zinner is currently displaying a few of his photos at Anastasia Photo in New York. The photos are taken by Nick from the stage at YYY’s concerts. It’s a fun juxtaposition as the crowd is performing for him and not the other way around as is the case when the lights go down and the band hits the stage.
These works are on display at Anastasia Photo (located at 166 Orchard Street) in New York through May 31, 2011.

Nick Zinner and G
Nick Zinner is the kind of artist we all dream of becoming. He’s the guitarist for the uber-successful band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, he’s produced songs for Ronnie Spector and TV On The Radio and he’s done remixes for Bloc Party. He’s also an accomplished photographer, who has published 3 books of his work. For the health conscious who are not impressed with the above credentials, he’s a vegan! When I met Nick Zinner, he was extremely nice as you can see from the above photo. I met him at the launch party for The Creators Project in New York, which goes down in G history as one of the most epic events I’ve ever been to. He had some of his works on display, which you can see after the jump. But first let me set the stage. You walked into a darkened room where ambient music was playing and each of his pictures were lit from behind as you walked through the room to get to the next image. It was really cool. Thanks again Nick!
