Starting in the 1960s, revered rock music photographer Jini Dellaccio created startling and artistic portraits of popular bands like The Sonics and The Wailers, rejecting the boring five-member lineup and producing iconic album covers. Jini Dellaccio speaks in this film about her life and photos. She was born in Indiana, grew up during the Depression, fell in love with jazz, worked as a self-taught fashion photographer in the 1950s. Dellaccio had already lived a pretty interesting life by the time she started snapping photos of aspiring rockers in the early sixties and producing the body of work she is known for among musicians and photographers. At 48, Dellaccio started working with bands like The Sonics and The Wailers, shooting iconic album cover photos of band members with great works of architecture and sculpture, climbing trees, and leather boots. Dellaccio rejected the boring five-member lineup band photograph, and established herself as one of the most exciting, innovative composers in rock photography. This masterful film about her fearless life and groundbreaking work features striking photos taken by Dellaccio of young rockers, models, and even a few self-portraits along with archival photos and film from her early life. The soundtrack and interviews capture the explosion of Pacific Northwest rock that Dellaccio was so keen on documenting.
