In 1968 Ethan Russell was a young American with a Nikon camera in London who wanted to be a writer. A few years later, he was to portray the world's greatest rock bands. Through a friend he got his first job, he was invited to accompany him to an interview and take pictures of it. What he didn't know was that it would be Mick Jagger. His legendary photographs for album covers for the Beatles, and photos of Chris Cornell, Jim Morrison, the Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin documented musical history. In 1978 he successfully shifted his artistic focus to the music video industry, producing videos for Joni Mitchell and John Lennon among others.
