#MUSICMONDAY feat. Said Abusaud

My name is Said Abusaud and I am the photographer, visual artist, creative conceptualist and owner for a group I created called Afterglow Gallery. Afterglow Gallery is a members-only band of artists here in Dallas, TX. The team gets together every few months to create conceptual themed based photo shoots to give Dallas a new look on art. We’ve been getting together creating new ideas for over three years now and I couldn’t imagine a better group of people to help me bring my visions to life. 

As a photographer, music is such an integral part of my life. All my photography, and the quotes and songs I coincide with them, have a hidden meaning. And nobody has ever been able to figure them out. I imagine one day someone will when i'm long gone. The following musicians I've selected in the playlist called goonie, have in some capacity, inspired me to create art. They all bring something rather unique to the table, all different spirits. I respect these artists more than they know, and I credit them for making me who I am today. A world without music is a world I wouldn't want to live in. The effect is unquantifiable, yet I always know how a song will make me feel. And when you lose someone, the song will always be there. As an artist and individual, I only show one part of my life. Today, you're getting a preview of the other side. Cheers.
