DON'T MISS!: ON THE RECORD
When lensman Eilon Paz moved to Brooklyn almost 20 years ago, photography jobs were hard to come by. “So I started to look for a personal project,” he says. “I was always a vinyl collector, and there were so many others in New York that it just clicked.” Since then, Paz has traveled from New York to the UK, Ghana, Turkey, Israel and elsewhere, photographing and interviewing fellow obsessives for his “Dust & Grooves” project, whose monthlong exhibition debuts tonight. “I want to get a glimpse on their collecting, the human aspect of it,” says Paz, who often asked his subjects questions such as, “Are there any records that broke your heart?” “Music is medicine for the soul,” he says, and he hopes his show will give an “intimate look at people’s lives.” Plus, with collectors DJing tonight, “it’s gonna be a party,” he adds.
Tropicalia in Furs Record Store, 304 E. Fifth St.; tonight from 7 to 10; dustandgrooves.com
