RIP: David Gahr, photographer

You are probably very familiar with the photo on the right, as it was used in the cover one of Bruce Springsteen’s best albums: The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle. The author, photographer David Gahr, passed away on Monday. He was 85. Gahr took also the famous picture of The E Street Band that appears on the backcover of the album, taken in 1973.

Gahr was a prestigious photographer, who shot and worked with all the big names in music, from John Lennon to Janis Joplin, including Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Charles Mingus or Miles Davis, and his work was featured in many album and magazine covers.

R.I.P.: David Gahr, fotógrafo

La foto de la derecha seguramente os resultará familiar: es la foto usada para la portada de unos de los mejores discos de la carrera de Bruce Springsteen: The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle. El autor de la misma, David Gahr, falleció el lunes 26 de mayo a los 85 años. Gahr tomó también la fotografía que aparece en la contraportada del disco, con la E Street Band (de 1973) al completo.

Reconocido fotógrafo, por delante de su cámara pasaron los mayores mitos de la música (desde John Lennon a Janis Joplin, pasando por Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Charles Mingus o Miles Davis) y sus fotos se usaron en innumerables portadas de discos y revistas.
