Rock and roll photos to be displayed at Mattapoisett library

Aug 12, 2023

MATTAPOISETT — Go to the Mattapoisett Free Public Library between Sept. 5 and 30 to see Chris Morgado's photographs of rock and roll concerts. Morgado is a former summer resident of Mattapoisett, where his extended family has lived for more than 120 years.

Morgado's interest in rock and roll photography stems from his early participation in a punk rock band in which he performed. He holds a BFA in theater and communications from Salem State University. When not working as Supervisor of the World Wrestling Entertainment Media Library, Morgado photographs concerts using a Canon Adjustable lens camera and iPhone. His intention is not to document the event, but to create an impression - to put the viewer in the moment to experience the cacophony of sound and light from the concert venue.
