First Friday with William Murphy

  • The Red Chair Cafe 337 East 4th Avenue Anchorage, AK, 99501 United States (map)

Join us to welcome our December First Friday Artist William Murphy

"William Murphy is an Alaskan based music, landscape, and portrait photographer who has been featured by True North Magazine, Societer Mag, and numerous social media collectives for his work. His art thus far has mostly been landscapes featuring Alaska's natural features and collaborative projects with some of our local artists around here. A lot of William's work is centered around nighttime photography, including long exposures showing the aurora, milky way, star trails, etc. Combining an urban or human subject with the northern lights or stars is a very common theme, as shown in his piece 'Exposure', featuring a car driving by leaving a trail of light illuminating the scene and a backdrop of stars in the sky.

William also works with a few colleagues in NYC banding together under the name Kollective Productions. Kollective Productions is a music and visual based event production and creative services company with roots in hip-hop that is committed to documenting the underground music scene and building a platform for under seen, and under heard creatives in the greater NYC area, Anchorage, and more. He has plans to move down to NYC and dive fully into music photography among other things with this group of colleagues during the next year."
