Lynn Goldsmith

Lynn Goldsmith’s distinctive, personal approach to her photographs of musicians had made her one of the most expressive chroniclers of the rock ‘n roll era. She has captured some of the finest rock, jazz and R&B performers of our time in brilliant, often surprising images that reveal a great deal about her subjects. Her monograph, PhotoDiary is an unforgettable combination of Goldsmith’s acclaimed photographs, life story, and anecdotes about the musicians we’ve listened to, danced to, and admired over the years. A document of an important time for popular music, Lynn relates personal stories about many of the stars she has photographed. From intimate accounts about her friends and lovers, including Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Bob Dylan, David Byrne and Patti Smith, to the tales of the rigors of photographing difficult subjects like Miles Davis, Prince, Roger Daltry, and James Brown, to her adventures with the Rolling Stones, Goldsmith gives us a candid and fascinating portrait of each performer. PhotoDiary is a long-awaited collection of over 250 of Lynn Goldsmith’s best. With an autobiographical introduction by the photographer and diary-style entries throughout the book, PhotoDiary is a comprehensive and enthralling account of an era, a generation and a career. Lynn Goldsmith lives in New York City and Woodstock, NY.
