(New York, New York) American record producer, engineer, songwriter and photographer, Terry Manning, is proud to announce his World Premiere Photo Exhibit that will take place in Boston in late August. This event marks the first time that Manning uncovers his photographic work to the general public. Alongside his highly esteemed music career spanning over several decades, Manning fostered his passion for photography since his teens and shot still lifes as well as legendary political and music figures in various parts of the world. His subjects include Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Lenny Kravitz, Chuck Berry, Terry Reid and Marvin Gaye among many others. Manning will kick off his World Premiere Photo Exhibition with a special VIP, invite-only “wine and cheese gala” on August 21, 2015 from 6-9 p.m. The exhibit will be open to the public, 12-6 p.m., on August 22-23 and August 29-30, 2015 at the Boston Cyberarts Gallery at 141 Green St. (Green St. T), Jamaica Plain, MA 02130.

Hailing from El Paso, Texas, Terry Manning spent a majority of his early life in Memphis, Tennessee where he honed both of his beloved art forms--music and photography.  As a producer and engineer, Manning worked for Stax Records, the preeminent soul music label, and out of the famous Ardent Studios with several artists, including Booker T. Jones, Isaac Hayes, The Staple Singers, Steve Cropper, Al Green and Otis Redding as well as Ike & Tina Turner, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top and over 100 others. Meanwhile, Manning consistently pursued his photography, taking opportunities to shoot famous musicians he worked with or met, including Lenny Kravitz, Chuck Berry, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, among many other artists from that classic rock period. In his teens, Manning was able to photograph Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis on April 3, 1968, capturing some of the very last photos ever taken of Dr. King before his tragic death.

While in Memphis, Manning also became close friends with world-renowned photographer, William Eggleston, from whom the young Manning learned a great deal in the photography world. Through Eggleston, Manning was exposed to other photography greats, including  Lee Friedlander and William Christenberry, that were huge influences on the developing artist. Manning was often hired to shoot at music festivals, for album covers, for newspapers such as NME in London and occasionally during recording sessions.

A collection of Manning’s photos are compiled in two volumes to be released in August 2015:  Scientific Evidence of Life on Earth During Two Millenia, Volume One, and CUBA Despues del Tiempo Especial, Antes de Los Americanos. Both books will be available for purchase at his Boston exhibit in August 2015 through Sandcat Press, and later on online book retail sites.

Be sure to check out Terry Manning’s World Premiere Photo Exhibit at the Boston Cyberarts Gallery on August 21-30, 2015.  Stay tuned for more photo exhibits in Memphis, Minneapolis and several other cities.
