Leon Gozbekian, a music industry photographer presented his first book, “All Access Concert & Backstage Photos, a Photo Essay of my Journey as a Music Photographer”. A great addition to the coffee table, the book features over 600 photographs across 200 pages and includes plenty of commentary on artists and insider music industry events.
Gozbekian gives the reader a first-hand insight into the stage and an intimate behind-the-scenes look at the most popular rock musicians of the past 50 years. The book covers many genres of music with color and black and white photos that include The Who, David Bowe, Billy Joel, Barenakedladies, Alanis Morissette, Cristina Aguliera, Kid Rock, Jennifer Lopez, Post Malone, Kanye West, Tina Turner, Iggy Pop, Lady Gaga and many other artists.
Luck introduced Gozbekian to the music industry. Raised in the Boston area, at the age of 20, he got a call to travel to New York to photograph The Who for Sunn Amplifier Company. “That’s when I went from being a fan to being a music photographer,” he said. It was the start of a 50 year journey where he worked for major labels, radio stations and venues with incredible access to concerts, backstage and private events.
“All Access Concert & Backstage Photos, a Photo Essay of my Journey as a Music Photographer” is available on Amazon.com.
