Have you checked Part 1 of Mugshots of Musicians? If so, then let's continue on in this Mugshot musical history...
Last time, we looked at early mugshots of rock musicians — from Death Metal gods to Punk Rock stars. This time, let’s dip back again into the ‘60s and ’70s and check out some more photos in this second part of ’Mugshots of Musicians’
Looking sleek with swag in this mugshot, 29 year old Mr. Stardust, David Bowie was arrested in New York in March 1976 (together with Iggy Pop) on a felony pot possession charge. This mugshot was taken three days after he was arrested when Bowie went to City Court for arraignment.
The Man in Black, Johnny Cash was arrested in 1965 as he was on his way back from a trip to Mexico after U.S. Customs agents discovered hundreds of pep pills and tranquilizers in his luggage. After spending a night in El Paso jail, Cash paid $1000 in cash (pun intended) as fine.
The Doors lead vocalist Jim Morrison was arrested in 1970 after exposing himself during a 1969 concert in Miami. He was charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure and profanity offenses.
Jimi Hendrix was arrested at Toronto International Airport airport in May 1969 after customs agents found hash and heroin inside his luggage. The Guitar God claimed that the drugs were slipped inside his bag by a fan without his knowledge. The charges were later dropped.
Film Photography Day 2015 is fast approaching —do you have the film on hand to document the good times? We’re talking parties, dances, competitions, workshops, raffles, picnics and much, much more! If you don’t have film to last this gigantic 1 day festival of all things analogue, then now is the time to stock up! And even if you do, can you ever really have enough film? Nah, we don’t think so either.
Musician and record producer Dustin Tebbutt left sunny Australia and relocated to Sweden for two years. This experience had a significant influence on his musical style, resulting a delicious blend folk and indie-pop. Armed with the Fisheye no. 2, our newest LomAmigo went on a city trip and captured his moments on film. Check out his gallery along with his interview.
If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.
Julie Budet, better known as Yelle, is a french musician, who in 2007 joined forces with GrandMarnier (Jean-François Perrier). Since then, they have been working together, creating music and touring around the world. Last year they released their 3rd album - Complètement Fou (completly crazy) - and took the LC-A+ with them on their US tour.
Turkish band Yok Öyle Kararlı Şeyler (YÖKŞ) will be part of Sziget Music Festival this coming August. Erdem Topsakal, the band's vocalist, captured scenes with the Fisheye No.2 recently, while YÖKŞ was on tour.
Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
On this day and age when many are incorporating digital gear into their workflows, whether fully or partly, there still are photographers who remain rooted to their analog roots and continue to shoot with film cameras. In commemoration of Film Photography Day happening tomorrow, we have scoured through our past interviews to highlight the reasons these photographers choose to still shoot film.
