Renowned music photographer Michael Weintrob has announced his newest book, Instrumenthead: Revealed along with a free livestreamed concert series.
Weintrob’s 2017 photo book, Instrumenthead, showcases portraits of famous musicians with their signature instruments covering their faces. It won the Independent Book Publisher’s Award for Most Outstanding Design.
Instrumenthead: Revealed will feature “unmasked” portraits of the same 369 musicians, taken at the same photography session. Portraits include Bootsy Collins, Susan Tedeschi, Mickey Hart, Johnny Winter, Charlie Musselwhite and many more.
I want to do my part to inspire people to learn about new music and the artists who create it. I love to connect and break down walls with my photography. Everyone has the ability to be a kid again. This book is really special, because we’re unmasking the original photos. The book reflects the new energy this year.Michael Weintrob
Instrumenthead: Revealed is available for preorder until July 22 through a crowdfunding campaign. $3 of every book will benefit the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic. Founded by a coalition of music advocates in 1998, the New Orleans’ Musicians’ Clinic is the first medical clinic for musicians, performing artists and cultural workers in the US.
In addition to his new book release, Weintrob is also presenting a concert series featuring several of the “revealed” artists. The concerts will be livestreamed and free to enjoy.
