About Jay Blakesberg
In 1978, at age 16 Jay Blakesberg’s father loaned him a Pentax camera to take pictures at a Grateful Dead concert in his homestate of NJ. That was the beginning of a 40-year adventure photographing the rock and roll experience.
His first paid assignment came in September 1979 when the Aquarian Weekly paid Jay $15 to run two photographs in the free weekly. In November 1987, Jay landed his first assignment with Rolling Stone Magazine to photograph a free U2 concert in downtown San Francisco.
Please also visit a selection of Rock & Roll photographs taken by Jay Blakesberg in Golden Gate Park, on display at the McLaren Lodge.
