Music Photography

Following a link from the Montreal City Blog, I signed up with the Media in Montreal Yahoo Group yesterday. Today from that group there is an excellent link to website featuring work by Linda Dawn Hammond, a photographer specialising in the rock, punk. hardcore, etc. music scenes.

I love sites like these because they do so much to evoke a time and place. It’s particularly good for stuff from the Montreal scene in the 1980’s – SCUM, The Asexuals, and of course, Men Without Hats are all represented.

There are also some great photos of other acts like Lou Reed, Dead Kennedys, Pere Ubu, and a great shot of Talking Heads (“You may ask yourself, ‘What’s with the big suit?’ / You may ask yourself, ‘Is this trendy or something?'”). Not to drop hints or anything but the photos are for sale and I do have a birthday coming up…
