The Freight presents
The Photography of James Knox
As a nonprofit community arts organization dedicated to promoting public awareness and understanding of traditional music from around the world, Freight & Salvage is proud to present its first ever exhibition by Bay Area photographer James Knox. The exhibit, which opened on July 13th, is a special commission by Freight and Salvage documenting several concerts after we reopened last fall, since the pandemic shut it down. This is an up-close-and-personal look at a collection of photos documenting concerts at the Freight from September to December 2021.
James Knox has been photographing the Bay Area jazz scene for over 20 years. His photographs have been featured in SF Chronicle, Wall Street Journal, Sotheby’s Realty, Visiting Oakland Tourist Guide and album covers/websites for local and national artists.

He was also a staff photographer for 2019 Monterey Jazz Festival. His photo of Kurt Elling was published in SFJAZZ: The First 30 Years: Setting the Stage.
