Indie, Seen

The Indie Rock Photography of Piper Ferguson

Written By: Piper Ferguson, Johnny Marr
Indie, Seen is the timely journey through the alternative music scene via the lens of music photographer Piper Ferguson. Beginning her career in the late 1990s as a woman photographer in a once male-dominated field, Piper is known for telling dynamic and intimate stories from behind her lens. The results are beautiful, enthralling, and truly original photographs. Indie, Seen presents Piper’s most personal and exclusive works curated in one volume, from her first portrait sessions with artists like Joe Strummer and Richard Ashcroft, to festival performances, behind-the-scenes photoshoots, editorial portrait sessions, and wild nights out. Enjoy vibrant images of iconic indie rock performers, such as Interpol, The Strokes, Coldplay, and Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs. With more than 200 images, Indie, Seen is a must-have for every rock and music history fan to indulge and explore the moments behind the music. She was there--now you can be, too.

AMAZING IMAGERY: Piper shoots in a wildly creative and intuitive style that makes every photograph jump off the page. Catch your favorite (and new favorite) artists jumping and jamming, posing and playing, and expressing the power of doing it for yourself.

GREAT GIFT FOR MUSIC FANS: Presented in a gorgeous hardcover format, this book makes a great gift for not only indie rock fans, but all musical and cultural historians. It’s a perfect coffee-table book to recapture the moment these bands changed music forever.
