Hoey's Jax Today photo essay offers a unique look at music in Northeast Florida
In a recent photo essay for Jacksonville Today (the second in an ongoing series for the recently launched newsletter and website), Beaches-based lens-person Leighton Hoey captures the verve and enthusiasm surrounding the city’s burgeoning live music scene.
At 23, Hoey’s already a season veteran documentarian of music in Northeast Florida. And, in contrast to the more posed or highly stylized press photos that many of us who cover music are used to, Hoey’s immersive view––impromptu snaps of bands and audiences in full-flight––certainly standout.
Like JME, Jax Today is a service of WJCT Public Media. The daily newsletter, which offers news and notes from around the region and ways to get involved locally, was launched in mid-October. A full website is planned for the spring.
