HER AIM IS TRUE
Unlikely rock ‘n’ roll photographer Jini Dellaccio visualized punk before it had a name, captured grunge before the hype, and embodied indie before it was cool. In the early 1960s, Jini forged a career photographing iconic Northwest bands like The Wailers and The Sonics, setting the stage for modern portrait photographers like Annie Leibovitz. In Karen Whitehead’s upcoming film, Her Aim Is True, the filmmaker examines Jini’s courageous and convention-defying life, focusing on her work and the close bonds she formed with her subjects. Tomorrow, join the production team, including Whitehead, at the Marriott SpringHill Suites in Downtown Seattle, from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, for a chance to see selected clips from the film.
