Paul Simon Tribute for the Skirball Cultural Center

I made some photos for the Skirball Cultural Center of the Paul Simon tribute that was hosted by Sean Watkins and put on by The Bluegrass Situation. It was a really beautiful evening with wonderful music. Every Summer I look forward to making photos for the Skirball Cultural Center's Sunset Concert series. I loved having the opportunity to make these intimate music photos that show what a wonderful place the Skirball Center is to experience live music.
