In this WEBINAR, I speak with photographer Michael Grecco about his experiences shooting iconic concerts, bands, and artists throughout his career.
We dive into the creation of his newest book titled “Punk, Post Punk, New Wave: Onstage, Backstage, In Your Face, 1978-1991“
From the book's press release:
In the cultural crucible of the very non-socially-distanced late 1970s, punk rock music expanded and morphed into the post-punk and new wave movements that prevailed until the early 1990s. During this time, Los Angeles-based fine art, editorial and celebrity portrait photographer and director Michael Grecco was down and dirty in the thick of it, shooting shows in Boston and New York.
His was a unique opportunity to be embedded in this revolutionary scene from the very beginning both as a chronicler and a participant – a self-described “club kid.” Selections from this body of work – all previously unseen – comprise Grecco’s newest book, Punk, Post Punk, New Wave: Onstage, Backstage, In Your Face, 1978–1991 (Abrams Books; November 10, 2020).
