Back in March, I introduced you to Jesse Pollock, creator of Unpiano, a San Francisco publishing company, music blog, and photo website. Now, I’d like to introduce you to his father.


Arthur Pollock is a photojournalist living in Boston, Massachusetts. He’s been taking photos for more than 40 years, both as a freelancer and for The Boston Herald, where he’s currently the Assistant Photo Editor. Arthur’s gotten props for his work, including awards from World Press and the National Press Photographers Association. And now he also has a book put out by his son. Jesse is so proud of and inspired by his dad’s photos that he decided to memorialize them. Arthur Pollock is a 184-page collection of beautiful, eye-catching moments. The images, which span Arthur’s career, look vintage but feel timeless all the same. Their stopping power is undeniable.


Check out the works from Arthur Pollock (and meet the man himself) at Friday’s book release party, taking place from 5-9 p.m. at SF Camerawork. The show runs from Thursday, Oct. 20 through Saturday Oct. 22, so don’t miss it! 

And in the meantime, check out this random but awesome video promoting the book, directed by Hamburger Eyes’ Ray Potes and featuring a song by Namesake.
