From the Publisher
Instruments tell stories through their appearance as much as
through their sound.<br/><br/> 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.<br/><br/> 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.
