Jason Thrasher’s photography book, Athens Potluck, has been published by Deeds Publishing. The 424-page hardcover book focuses on the diverse Athens music scene, tying everything together with a simple concept. Accompanying each of Thrasher’s photos of musicians – ranging from Michael Stipe and Patterson Hood to Thayer Sarrano, Art Rosenbaum and the late Ross Shapiro of The Glands – are a short series of questions and answers. Thrasher posed five questions to the first subject he snapped for the book, Elf Power’s Laura Carter, who then chose and came up with five questions for the next subject, Will Hart of The Olivia Tremor Control, who chose Julian Koster (The Music Tapes) as the next subject and jotted down five questions for him, and so on.
