bergenPAC’s House Photographer Presents Retrospective Of This Year’s Headliners

Relive the excitement from this year’s headliners when bergenPAC’s house photographer, Jeremy Lebled, exhibits images from his favorite concerts in The Sandy Bennett Art Gallery. He will talk with guests about his show experiences at an artist reception on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m.

“I feel most alive the moment the lights go down. The stage is pitch-black, and the show is about to start. There is an electric atmosphere buzzing through the crowd in anticipation of the band about to hit the stage,” Jeremy said. “It can give you chills all the way up your spine. It’s the most exciting feeling in the world. Then suddenly, in the blink of an eye, the show has begun.”

Jeremy can remember when he was a little boy sitting in the backseat of his mother’s car, cruising down the three-lane highway to the Jersey Shore with the windows rolled down, wind blowing back against his hair and his mother blasting music from so many of the greats. Peter Frampton, Debbie Harry, Alice Cooper, Pat Benatar, Cheap Trick, Lynyrd Skynyrd and George Thorogood, just to name a few. Ironically, Jeremy would go on to photograph many of them years later.

“I still remember my first concert as a new photographer. I realized quickly the words that my favorite high school teacher, Dennis Covello, told me was true, ‘If you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life,’” Jeremy said. “This didn’t feel like work to me. It was something I truly loved. I smiled from ear to ear the whole car ride home. God planted a seed in my heart that has continued to harvest over the past seven years over my photography career.”

Jeremy has also been published in Vogue Italia multiple times for his photography and other notable publications. Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone Magazine’s first Chief Photographer told Jeremy “You’ve got a great eye and a way with people. Follow your bliss. Stick with your passion. You’ve got a wonderful future in photography.”

A portion of the proceeds from sales of the prints support bergenPAC’s nonprofit mission. The Sandy Bennett Gallery is on the mezzanine level of bergenPAC and is open to the public 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fridays and 12 to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
