New music photography book: Rare Joy Division
Manchester photographer Kevin Cummins was at the right place at the right time in the world of music + photography - up close and personal with the (posthumously) highly influential music group "Joy Division" and he is now sharing rare photographs of the band in a new 208-page book that just came out today, titled "Joy Division". We haven't seen the book, but music magazine SPIN has a slideshow with sixteen pictures from the book. I bet a number of music/concert photographers, even those who shoot multi-platinum artists, would trade that off for a chance to be in Kevin Cummins's shoes.
