Between 1978 and 1988, Swiss photographer Bruno Stettler captured around 100 rock and pop concerts in and around Zürich, resulting in a trove of 20,000 pictures.
Bruno Stettler was a witness and documentarist of a time of musical awakening, when the distance from stage to audience was only a few meters. Flash photography was often difficult, so highly sensitive 400 ASA films were essential. He pushed them up to 800-1000 ASA. Photo retouching, as it is so easy to do on screen with a few mouse clicks today, did not exist for the amateur. He worked with negatives, not with slides, because original photo prints in the format 9×13 could be produced economically and sold with a mail-order business. The imperfections of the time translate into authenticity today. The result is a 400-pages thick photo-book that captures the spirit of a generation. Publisher`s Info
