Houston TV photographer's rock photos become exhibit

I blogged about Houston television photographer Jaime Zamora's nearly 30 year old rock star photos from Corpus Christi, TX. Now those babies are being shown in an exhibit!

Jaime Zamora brings Corpus Christi’s Memorial Coliseum back to life with his photographs of rock-n-roll’s greatest musicians, showing at The Art Center of Corpus Christi this August. Zamora’s photographs capture live concerts of superstars such as Ozzy Osbourne with Randy Rhoads, Journey, Van Halen with David Lee Roth, Carlos Santana, Judas Priest, AC/DC with Bon Scott, RUSH, and more, before they became legends.

A Corpus Christi native, Zamora grew up on the city’s west side. His passion for photography and rock-n-roll started as a teenager, when he would frequent Corpus Christi’s Memorial Coliseum to capture iconic rock-n-roll performers of the ‘70s and ‘80s. At every concert he positioned himself directly in front of the stage, so his photographs could capture the high energy, heart pounding adrenaline he felt at every concert.

Don’t miss Zamora’s rare concert photos of rock-n-roll’s greatest stars, showing at The Art Center of Corpus Christi at 100 Shoreline Drive, just blocks from where the concerts rocked the Memorial Coliseum thirty years ago. The show will run through the end of August, with free admission to the public.

The opening date is August 12th. It runs all month and the best part it is free.
