I love shooting live music photography! I’ve worked with some great musicians and I love that I am a part of their image creation. Thoroughly enjoyed living in the live music capital of the world- Austin, TX!
I’m sure most people have at least one Rock & Roll image seared into their brains (and probably a lot more). Music videos, not so much or as clearly. I certainly have vague memories of music videos, but nothing like the memories and feelings around something the photo of Paul Simonon smashing his bass on the cover “London Calling” taken by Pennie Smith.
Images burned in my mind, taking me back to a place where I was quite sure I was to become the next Neil Zlowzer!, the passion of photography has expanded my love for making iconic images and only feel that the subject of Rock & Roll is where I will make my life’s mark. I simply love it!!
Like Mick said, “It’s only Rock & Roll, but I like it!!”
I saw this film at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles last year, as well as the New York version of the exhibit (minus the film, plus the guitars). Both were fantastic! I wonder if the film will get a wider release?
The rock photography of Linda McCartney is rediscovered through images handpicked by Paul McCartney and a rare interview with Mary McCartney who discusses her mother’s rarely seen, historic work.
