UPDATE: INTO THE LIGHT - GOAL REACHED!!!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all my backers! We are in the final hours of the Kickstarter and any additional funding will go towards promoting the book launch.

Cheers guys, YOU ROCK!

 

Into The Light is a twenty year retrospective coffee table book of my award-winning music photography featuring a foreword by rock legend Steve Miller and showcasing musical luminaries such as B.B. KingEric Clapton, Slash, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Santana, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, U2, The Who, Pink Floyd, and The Rolling Stones just to name a few...

After thousands of miles traveled, sleepless nights spent editing and twenty years into my journey as a music photographer, I decided it was time to turn my collection into something I could share with music and art lovers everywhere. My love for music began at age four when I started learning to play the cello and then into my teens when I first heard the opening riffs of Led Zeppelin’s “Communication Breakdown” and instantly switched to guitar. As a musician and music fan, photography has allowed me to channel that passion. This collection of photos are for those who want to know the magic that was watching B.B. King pour his heart and soul into his guitar or the magnetism that was the late great Sharon Jones. I’ve captured these moments to last forever and that's why I have decided to embark on this "Into The Light" Kickstarter Campaign and I'd love for you to join me in this endeavor.

About the Authors

Jérôme Brunet has shot a veritable who's who in the Blues, Rock, Jazz, and Soul genres. His award-winning photographs have been published internationally in Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Time, Billboard, Popular Photography, American Photo, Guitar World, Variety, Smithsonian and The New York Times. His client list includes Nikon, Fender, Gibson, John Varvatos, Warner Bros. Records and he has collaborated with the non-profit organizations Unicef, T.J. Martell Foundation and the John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit. Jérôme is based in Los Angeles and is represented by the San Francisco Art Exchange Gallery, Rock Paper Photo, John Varvatos, and The Black Gallery in Paris.

Steve Miller is one of rock music’s all time greats, selling more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years. His trademark blues-rock sound made him one of the key artists in classic rock radio with smash hits like “The Joker,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” and "Abracadabra". Steve Miller continues to play over sixty sold-out shows every year across the country and was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of their class of 2016. He is the original Gangster of Love, some people call him Maurice, the Midnight Toker, or the Space Cowboy and he still speaks of the Pompitus of Love!
