Volume 1: Through the Lens of Music Photographer Rob Shanahan
By: Rob Shanahan
From one of the most published photographers in the music industry, Volume 1 is Shanahan's first published collection of concert, behind-the-scenes and studio photographs. What makes Volume 1 so pleasing, beyond the vivid images, is Shanahan's enthusiasm for his work, which he conveys in brief yet animated anecdotes on the "key" page that are spaced conveniently throughout his book. The author is also an amateur drummer, which explains the number of beat-keepers featured here, including Ringo Starr who has penned the book's Forward. From icons to relative obscurities, Shanahan makes every subject an engaging image.
