Have fallen more than a little in love with photographer Aaron Stern.
Producer and talent booker for some of the biggest music festivals and fashion events, Stern turned his camera – his preferred medium format 35mm film – onto his booked acts. Capturing the light and shadowy land of the coveted backstage, Stern has photographed Alison Mosshart with her bangs flying and stilled The Strokes in all their sweaty Neeeww Yowrk style.
But the particular photographs that I love, are the those of the fans. The guys bruising themselves on the railings; the ones who are nearly crying in anticipation of their heroes gracing the stage. I've shared that excitement and I love the fact that Stern has captured it.
He has a book coming out, Everyone Must Be Announced – definitely one for the growing library of inspiration – but please do check out his website too, here
