Musician Portraits by Richard Blair


Jerry Garcia

Grace Slick

Joan Baez

These are my photographs of great artists starting from the 1960’s. I was a regular at concerts and always brought my cameras. I liked to photograph from the front of the stage so I could get a close-ups of the musicians preforming with as much emotion and soul as I could capture on film.

These images are clickable to see a enlarged version of the portrait.
