Photo exhibit captures directors experiences with rock stars

Since the demise of the music video, or rather it''s relocation from MTV to YouTube, the artists behind music videos have found new ways to showcase their skill behind the lens. From Spike Jonze to David LaChapelle, music video directors have branched out into the world of photography and made quite an impression doing so.

Well add a new name to the list of former directors serving as photographers, as Emmett Malloy - who has helmed videos for artists like the Raconteurs, Jack Johnson and Metallica - opened a new photo exhibit in New York''s Morrison Hotel Gallery this week.

Malloy, who is also co-founder of Brushfire Records, is showcasing 25 photographs of artists he has worked with in the past. Included in the collection are candid shots of the White Stripes, Oasis and Dead Weather among others.

"(Photography) is something I just picked up along the years," Malloy tells online music magazine Spinner. "What I like most about the photos is that they''re the moments that didn''t get filmed. They''re kind of like the moments in between, and that''s why it''s been fun to blow them up because you''re like, ''Wow, this is a cool time.''"

The show will run through the middle of January.
