Cei's Lounge: The Darkroom Days (1990s Edition)

  • CAFE NINE 250 State Street New Haven, CT, 06510 United States (map)


First Friday Artist in Residence Series with Photographer Kathleen Cei

 Photos of local bands and other compelling characters, taken with a totally old-school, fully-manual Nikon FM2 film camera by Kathleen Cei.  

Kathleen Cei has been pointing a camera at the New Haven scene for many years as photojournalist. Though these days her FM2 rests in the closet on a well-deserved hiatus (she now shoots with a highfalutin digital camera), she thought it would be fun to dig out these old shots from the start of her career at the New Haven Advocate. Kathleen currently works as a freelance photographer and serves as the Communications Manager at local nonprofit Music Haven. 

Images in the "Cei's Lounge" exhibit range from live photos of the Gravel Pit, the Mocking Birds, Malachi Krunch, 100 Faces and Jon Brion to dance artist Paul Hall and drummer Baba David Coleman — to name just a few.

Ends At 8pm
