This week a photo exhibit by James Mollison opens at the gallery at Colette. The photographer dutifully followed “disciples” of pop bands around on tour for three years (2004-2007) and photographed 8-10 followers at every show he attended (including Jennifer Lopez, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, Rod Stewart, Artic Monkeys, Dolly Parton, and so on and so forth). Mollison then combined the shots into one panoramic photo of each musician’s devoted fans. There are 58 panoramic shots in all and more than 500 individual photos. The results are seamless and extremely funny and will be on display at Colette until January 24, 2009.
