Stalwarts of the scene, Lettuce, showed up at Red Rocks last Friday to deliver their 3rd annual “Rage Rocks” to a rabid crowd.  Ten men strong, the stage was full all night and got damn near crowded as the band invited some big name guests to the stage including the hottest new voice in the jam scene, Marcus King, the guitar legend John Scofield, NOLA’s own Cyril Neville of The Neville Brothers, the father of the funky bass guitar, George Porter Jr. and Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah.  Note worthy support was provided by Turkuaz, who brought everyone to their feet as soon as they took the stage.  From the get-go the vibe in the venue had a fever like it must have when James Brown graced a stage; people just couldn’t help but get down!



Who Is Jim Mimna

Capturing life in various forms is what I do. I consider myself an archivist by nature. It is not a career choice that I consciously made, but it is something that has called me. I strive to freeze a moment in time with every frame, a moment that can retell its story with each viewing, forever. I also have a deep passion for music and have been photographing and recording live music for years. Capturing the energy and magic of a live performance in a photograph is one of my passions. In addition, I enjoy photographing in a wide variety of settings, from wildlife scenes to family portraits and everything in between. I am a lover of the earthscapes that we see all around us every day, both natural and manmade, and aim to make unique images that do justice to their beauty. Where others see darkness, I see streaks of light through long exposures. I shoot a very wide variety of subject matter including individual/family portraits, event coverage, landscapes, live concert/performance, HDR, product and commercial photography, architectural, weddings, food, and editorial photo journalism. With artistic expression, I aspire to create visual art that speaks volumes.
