Brad Elterman in 70’s/80’s Los Angeles

When he had his first camera, Brad Elterman was only 16. He started hanging out with some famous people like Bob Dylan, Joan Jett and Steve Jones whom He shot them in various places of Los Angeles (apartments, parties, clubs, streets) and then had the opportunity to meet and photograph some music superstars like Michael Jackson, Debbie Harry, Duran Duran. After this short but intense period from late 70’s to early 80’s, Brad Elterman stopped taking pictures and stored them away. It’s only 30 years later that he decided to pick up his camera again and to exhibit his work on his website. His tumblr has actually been named by Vice as the second best photo blog out there. Check out some his work below.

 Quand il a eu son premier appareil photo, Brad Elterman n’avait que 16 ans. Il a commencé à trainer avec quelques personnes célèbres comme Bob Dylan, Joan Jett et Steve Jones qu’il a photographié dans divers endroits de Los Angeles (appartements, soirées, clubs, rues) puis a eu l’opportunité de rencontrer et photographier des superstars de la musique comme Michael Jackson, Debbie Harry, Duran Duran. Après cette courte mais intense période de la fin des années 70 au début des années 80, Brad Elterman a arrêté de prendre ses photos et les a archivées. C’est seulement 30 ans plus tard qu’il a décidé de reprendre son appareil et d’exposer son travail sur son site internet. Son tumblr a d’ailleurs été nommé deuxième meilleur blog photo par Vice magazine. Regardez son travail ci-dessous.
