Select photographs from the book will leap from the pages onto the curated walls of El Centro Cultural de Mexico in downtown Santa Ana. The exhibit will be as expansive as Sorrondeguy's chronicling of the music from behind the lens over decades, across the United States and through ten countries on five continents!

In a recent interview about GET SHOT, Sorrondeguy responded to a question about the broad inclusiveness of his visual diary saying:
“When you're documenting what you come into contact with or with what or
who's around you, I guess that's what always is reflected in the body of
work. So I ended up with just everybody. You have pictures of trips
that I took to Japan. So that meant a lot of Japanese/Asian presence in
the book. Of course, you have the Latino/Chicano presence just from
touring Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Mexico, and all the Chicanos that
are living here in the states. You also have a ton of white kids too
though. You just have everything in the book.”
For naranjeros, that includes us,
Sorrondeguy will be present for the exhibit opening and copies of his book will be available for purchase!
