Bruce Springsteen

About this photograph

Bruce Springsteen is renowned for being a showman. Fascinated by Elvis Presley?s performances as a child, he decided at a very young age that he wanted to focus on music. He began his professional career in 1973. From 1975, Springsteen was on the cover of Time and Newsweek when his album Born to Run was released. Even if it only lasts for 39 minutes, this record is essential to the history of rock and roll. ?Bossmania? came to a height in 1984 with the release of the album and the Born in the U.S.A. tour. His pacifist speeches and his loyalty to the origins of rock and roll earned him his audience?s respect for more than four generations.

The Artist
Peter Hankfield

Originally from Liverpool, Peter had always immersed himself in rock culture. Lacking a musical ear, he had an eye for photography from an early age. Whilst the whole of Liverpool was listening to the Beatles on the radio, Peter had already proudly turned his attention to the American music scene. In 1969 at barely 18 years old, contrary to the wishes of his parents he decided to go to London to become a photographer. Peter knew that institutional training would not suit his strong personality. He therefore chose to train himself. Up against rebuffs but inspired by the criticism and advice handed out to him, Peter learnt to become a good technician and ended up a talented photographer. In July 1972 when Peter was only just 23 years old he went to Montreal to photograph the Rolling Stones in concert. His career as a photographer had taken off. He worked either by commission or by offering his shots to major newspapers. His skill allowed him to disengage from technical contingencies achieving artistic candid photos. He was not content to photograph music legends like Marley, Keith Richards, James Brown and Miles Davis. He mixed with them. It was his knowledge of the milieu and his huge respect for the musicians which allowed him to grasp on-stage reality. Now aged 63, Peter has chosen to live in Cornwall in the village of Polperro. He continues to work as a photographer and exhibits regularly
