Instrument

Not yet rated | write a review
Instruments tell stories through their appearance as much as through their sound.

Pat Graham''s photographs capture the intimate relationship between musician and instrument told by the signs of wear of fingers on frets or keys, chips, scratches, and modifications by the artists who have played, beaten on, bled over, and made them their own.

For more than ten years, Graham has been documenting these amazing instruments and collecting stories about them from musicians on the road, in clubs, and at home, including members of The Smiths, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips, R.E.M., New Order, Wire, Fugazi, Built to Spill, Band of Horses, Modest Mouse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and many more. His gritty and beautiful images reveal the physical nature of music.

About the Book

Often when Pat Graham photographs musicians, he'll also pay special attention to their instruments and the stories told by the signs of wear-the chips, scratches, and modifications that personalize the instruments to their owners. Instrument collects the most evocative and beautiful of these photographs of instruments alone and with the musicians who have played, beaten on, bled over, and loved them, including members of The Smiths, Sonic Youth, REM, New Order, Wire, Fugazi, Built to Spill, Band of Horses, Modest Mouse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and many more. Featuring 200 color photographs and first-person anecdotes and stories by the musicians themselves, Instrument will fascinate fans seeking a physical connection to music in a digital age.
