Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Don Hunstein had one cool gig. He was the Columbia Records staff photographer from 1955 to 1986. “In an era,” as New York Times music critic Pareles observes, “when major labels took themselves seriously as libraries of culture,” Columbia signed up an astonishingly diverse array of artists, musicians whom Hunstein put at ease because, as Art Garfunkel notes in his foreword, “he turned out to be one of us.” The results make for an irresistible and thrilling retrospective collection of black-and-white photographs documenting performances and historic recording sessions and capturing unique glimpses into the personalities of original and influential musicians. Here are candid pictures of Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Johnny Mathis, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Aretha Franklin, Glenn Gould, Leonard Bernstein, and Johnny Cash. Bob Dylan’s first two albums were graced with Hunstein’s photographs. As for Hunstein, he modestly shrugs off the aesthetic, psychological, even metaphorical dimensions of his keenly observant and strongly composed photographs, explaining “I just did my job.” Well said. But these portraits of artists at work are, without question, works of art. --Donna Seaman

“A collection of gorgeous, never-before-seen photos from the Columbia Records archive, Keeping Time illustrates Hunstein’s ability to capture artists relaxing and being themselves.”—BookPage

“In today's celebrity-obsessed world, most images of stars tend to be contrived, taken in controlled environments. The paparazzi would love the access Don Hunstein enjoyed for decades … Keeping Time is a trove of mostly unseen and intimate black and white images of jazz, rock, soul, and classical greats who recorded on the Columbia label.” —BBC News Magazine

“…when I pick up a photo book, I want the images to do the lifting … Keeping Time: The Photographs of Don Hunstein, a wonderful new retrospective from Insight Editions, accomplishes exactly that … this coffee table must-have is all meat and potatoes, showcasing the mostly unseen and intimate images of Hunstein, who spent three decades as Columbia Records' official photographer.”—Mother Jones

Keeping Time is a fascinating look at some of the great musicians of the last century. The photos are stunning and beautifully reproduced. As a collection, the work is subtle and powerful. Don Hunstein is a master photographer, and this book is deeply rewarding.

We visited Bethel Performing Arts Center in the Carskills. Saw the Keeping Time attraction with many of the great photos in this book. Site of the original Woodstock Festval in 1969. The photos, all the work of talented Don Hunstein features wonderful shots of the great Rtists over a 30 year period. Won't a trip down memory lane. Book is highly recommended.
