Metal frontman Randy Blythe will have his photography on display at the Leica Gallery in Boston

Randy Blythe of metal band Lamb of God isn’t just a vocalist and songwriter– he’s also a celebrated photographer. Now, a collection of his photography work will be put on display at a new exhibition at the Leica Gallery in Boston.

The exhibition, called “A Longer View,” will center around three special themes: “pictures of environmentally-focused protests,” “images of man’s detrimental effect on the environment” and “landscape shots of pristine natural beauty.”

“It is my hope that the intersection of these images of dissent, waste and beauty will encourage each viewer to take ‘a longer view’ and consider their impact on the environment — I am trying to do the same,” Blythe said in an official statement.

“Perhaps together we can begin to reject the devastating environmental shortsightedness that has been the hallmark of human expansion in the modern age,” he added.

“A Longer View” will be open to the general public beginning Sept. 13, and the exhibition will run for nearly two months, closing on Nov. 11. Blythe will also participate in a talk about the exhibit at the gallery on September 14. For additional information, head to LeicaGalleryBoston.com.

In other news, Blythe and Lamb of God have spent much of this year on the road, traveling around North American opening for Slayer’s farewell tour alongside fellow metal bands Anthrax, Testament and Napalm Death.
