Photographer Christopher Felver has collected over 240 photographs from tours and encounters with musicians over the past 25 years. From Doc Watson to John Cage and Sonny Rollins to Patti Smith, his new book American Jukebox celebrates the tapestry and diversity of musical styles that make up the American sonic landscape. Caught in action on the stage or posed, Felver captures these musicians and composers in their musical element, revealing the face behind the rhythms, beats, and melodies that have punctuated American musical culture.
This month, Felver will appear at three events to promote his book. The first takes place May 22 at 7:00 p.m. at City Lights Books in San Francisco. Then he heads to New York City May 30 to sign copies of American Jukebox at Book Expo America from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the general autographing area (table 20). The following day, he will sign copies of his book at the Morrison Hotel Gallery from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
