New book: "No Cameras Allowed: My Career as an Outlaw Rock and Roll Photographer" by Julian David Stone

Excerpts from an article in Publishers Weekly (25 November 2019 -- Vol. 266 No. 47) about the new book No Cameras Allowed: My Career as an Outlaw Rock and Roll Photographer by Julian David Stone:

.

No Cameras Allowed tells the story, in words and photos, of how, beginning as a teenager and entirely by sneaking my equipment into concerts, I amassed an incredible archive of more than 10,000 rock ‘n’ roll photos. Starting by simply stashing a camera in my socks, then taping equipment all over my body, and finally customizing a jacket to hide equipment from security guards, I shot dozens of the 1980s’ greatest acts: David Bowie, Elvis Costello, the Grateful Dead, Joan Jett, the Police, Prince, R.E.M., the Ramones, the Talking Heads, U2, and many, many more. Culled from my never-before-seen archive, the book contains more than 250 of my best photos, along with some of the craziest adventures I had as I evaded oversize roadies, aggressive security, and more than a few drunken fans.

All of the photos in the book are at least 30 years old and represent a time in my life that I had closed back in the 1980s. It was only after Prince and David Bowie sadly passed away that the idea [to publish a book] started to form. I posted a few photos on social media that I had taken of them back in the 1980s, and suddenly I was inundated with people asking why I had these pictures and how I had come to take them.

My all-time favorite photo is a shot of Prince from the Purple Rain tour in 1985. It’s on page 191 of my book and shows him at the absolute peak of his fame — with the number one album, song, and movie in the country — standing majestically like a rock god, one hand on his guitar, the other high above his head, ready to be swung down to pound out a mighty power chord. But because he’s Prince, there is a beautiful pink boa wonderfully flowing along with the action.
