JOSEPH A. ROSEN

My music photography is only one aspect of my photographic life. It is fair and accurate to say that it is the subject matter about which I am most passionate. While I photograph all aspects of the Blues, Jazz, Soul and Roots music that I love, my signature work would be characterized as portraiture. Whether shot during performance, in the studio or simply hanging around backstage, I hope to capture the personality, emotion, energy and spirit of the artists and their endeavors. When the photographs are successful, they are portraits of both the music and the musician.
