Best People Ever Throw Art Gallery Opening Party
Some of Donnybrook’s favorite glamorous photographers started an art gallery/DIY concert venue called Leon, and they’re throwing a grand opening bash November 19th (this SATURDAY!). It will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and the photography of the amazing, worldly photographers Matthew Buford, Lindsay Giles McWilliams, Eric Robert Dallimore, and Sarah Law. I can’t speak on Matthew or Eric, but I know that Sarah and Lindsay are basically rock stars, as they’re at every show in every area code, taking photos in front of and behind the scenes – so there are bound to be some amazing music photos.

Sarah Law (San Diego, CA) is a free spirit who roams the planet capturing life on the road with bands. She spends much of her time in vans and in greenrooms showing a side of the music world that is rarely seen. The day to day/offstage life of up and coming artists. A chance encounter while shooting a wedding several years ago has led to a nomadic life that has allowed her to pursue her passion for photography, music, travel and people across the globe.
