Harry Benson Shooting Rock History

http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/pictures/revered-photographer-harry-benson-talks-iconic-shots-w454843

Being a music nerd myself I find these images wonderful. Some truly amazing images and stories to go with them.  Some images are composed while other let you hear the wings of music history. All the way from Sinatra to Beastie Boys. And now Dylan is coming to Stockholm, still going strong.

In a new documentary about his life and work, Harry Benson: Shoot First, his famous subjects-turned-admirers.

“what makes his photographs so memorable: they’re surprisingly candid and humanizing in a way that’s often lost in more controlled photography settings. “I hate studio pictures,” he told Rolling Stone earlier this week. “I like everything out of control. Like myself!”
