These remarkable photos capture the essence of who Springsteen was at that particular time in his life. A time when his musical career had just taken off, but he was still struggling with questions about his role as an artist, about who he was, and where he was going.
Frank Stefanko is undoubtedly a gifted photographer. Someone who was ideally suited and, dare I say, intended to take these pictures. There is a once-in-a-lifetime magic to almost every shot, for Springsteen was writing for and about characters just like Stefanko. Every note of Bruce's work embodies the sadness and hope of people learning to live with dreams found and lost. These photos get to the heart of those characters and this artist. Not surprising, since they were taken by a man seeing his world and his entire life right in front of him.
This book rocks! The 8o portraits of Bruce are sharp, edgy, and startling. Most of these pics have never been seen before. They are not mere snapshots, nor fuzzy stage shots. They are "in your face", large, clear, and with Bruce's "sharp eyes of truth" looking right at'cha.
They are accompanied by an affectionate and intimate narration by the photographer, Frank Stefanko. He chronicles his friendship and working relationship with Springsteen during those early "Days of hope and Dreams". A must have!
