I’ve Spent Years Tracking Down Historical Music Photography Locations, Here Are 71 Of The Best Pics (71 Pics)

I have been recreating music history by photographing the original images of musicians and bands in the exact location where they were photographed many years or even decades before. The project started in 2010 with old family photos, and since then, I’ve transitioned over to music photography having covered over 500 music locations mainly sharing my work on Instagram.

I compose each shot to include the original image in my hand, lined up (as best as I can) with the background as it appears today. I’ve enjoyed walking in the footsteps of some of my favorite musicians all while learning more about music history along the way. I like to challenge myself to find every location, so I scour through interviews, research the photographers, and investigate the timeline of the musicians during specific periods. I also comb through Google Maps, sometimes going street-by-street, exploring locations, and trying to match them to the original images.
