Joel Bernstein is an acclaimed photographer whose work, spanning more than four decades, chronicles the inner lives and public moments of some of the most important singer-songwriters, performers and musicians of our time. They include: Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, Prince, Jackson Browne, Laura Nyro, Tom Petty and many others. His preferred method has been to spend as much time as possible with his subjects until the right instant–the perfect moment of intimacy–reveals itself. Bernstein’s work is well known within the world of music and pop culture, and is included in the permanent collection of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. He has been published in a wide spectrum of books on music, musicians, and the music business, as well as in The New York Times, Time, Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair. Bernstein’s many album covers are commonly listed among the most influential in rock’s visual history.
