Rock & Roll Photography
Thomas Andrew Denenberg
"Backstage Pass" captures the most iconic rock & roll figures, from Elvis to Jimi Hendrix and beyond, with rare and never before seen photographs. Shot from the mid-fifties through the mid-nineties, the casual and off-stage portraits offer glimpses into the lives of these celebrities before they became household names. With a lineup of talented photographers such as Lee Friedlander and Bob Gruen, the volume offers over 100 photographs and original essays on the coded nature of celebrity portraiture and the frank sexuality of rock musicians. "Backstage Pass" will transport fans of rock & roll music and photographic portraits to a time when photographers were integral in documenting the world's biggest stars.
