Rock Stars of the 80's and 90's!, a Collector's Book of Memorabilia
In 1987 when Victoria Mitchell was twenty-one years old, she decided to follow her heart and become a professional photographer. Always a music-lover, Mitchell found it almost effortless to capture the essence of musicians with her camera. Early on, she photographed Jon Butcher, and one of her photos is on the cover of his The Best of Jon Butcher... Dreamers Would Ride. CD released in 1999. After Jon, Mitchell contacted Stevie Ray Vaughan's publicist, and arranged to photograph him. Later, she was hired by WHJY in Providence, Rhode Island, and tasked by its new owner, Merv Griffin to handle all their publicity, trade, and concert photography. During this time, Mitchell also had her own studio, and along with local bands, she photographed weddings, portraits and on-location family functions. She studied with Selena Oppenheim before relocating to Florida. For this book, Mitchell selected favorites from her personal collection, all taken between 1989 and 1992 and depicting some of the most famous bands and musicians from those years. With the current comeback of music from the '80s and '90s, the author/photographer thought the time was perfect to offer this collection. Whether you were in the audience for any of these concerts or just love listening to these musicians, decades later, this book is for you!
