Sound as Vision – Melissa Auf der Maur

Our friends over at National Geographic Music have a really cool article displaying the photography of Melissa Auf der Maur – best known for her stints as bassist in Hole and Smashing Pumpkins.  Documenting shows and life on the road, there are some great shots and very cool explanations of the process (camera used, processing technique, etc…). Below are a couple of our favorites.

“Self Portrait in TV, USA”

“James Jumping, Italy”

Canada Summer Stadium Show

Eric on Stage : Beautiful Monsters Tour, USA

“Sweden 1999”


We highly recommend checking out the full article for the stories behind these shots, as well as several other cool photos.  You can check that out here, and catch up all of Auf der Maur’s artistic and musical projects at her site here.
