Matthew Thorsen's 'Sound Proof: VT Music Images 1990-2000' Hardcover Photo Book Now Available

A gorgeous, archival quality hardcopy edition of the 'Sound Proof: Vermont Music Images 1990-2000' exhibit of Matthew Thorsen's documentary band portraits is now available at and can be previewed with a digital flip book. ‘Sound Proof’ is an exhibit of black and white photography by Matthew Thorsen, the go-to photographer for Burlington-area bands during the 1990s. Thorsen took hundreds of portrait, newspaper and magazine photos, chronicling the local music scene of the era. The photographs of Sound Proof were taken at a time when Thorsen was still working with film. These chemical prints have become an artful reminder of a receding era and a valuable historic record of Vermont’s musical heritage. The Sound Proof exhibit was produced by Big Heavy World with Matthew Thorsen and presented throughout Vermont by Seven Days, with generous support from Creative Habitat, the Vermont Arts Council and National Endowment for the Arts.
