Artist: PAZ, EILON
Title: Dust & Grooves: Adventures In Record Collecting
Format: Book
Label: Dust & Grooves
Country: USA
Price: $73.00
"Eilon Pazs 416-page coffee-table book illuminates over 130 vinyl connoisseurs and their collections in the most intimate of environments -- their record rooms. With a foreword by the RZA, compelling photographic essays are paired with in-depth interviews to illustrate what motivates record collectors to keep digging. Readers get an up close and personal look at a variety of well-known vinyl champions as well as a glimpse into the collections of world-renowned and lesser-known DJs, producers, record dealers, and everyday enthusiasts. The book is divided into two main parts: the first features 250 full-page photos framed by captions and select quotes, while the second consists of 12 full-length interviews that delve deeper into collectors personal histories and vinyl troves. It all started out several years ago as nothing more than a way for photographer Paz to engage in a personal project in his free time. Adrift in Brooklyn after emigrating from Israel, Paz -- a record collector on the side -- thought it might be fun to start taking photos of people whose record collections were both larger and weirder than his own. These portraits turned into the Dust & Grooves website, which quickly developed a global following that grew every time a new portrait was added to the mix. People all over the world seemed to dig not only the beauty of Eilons photos, but the interviews with the collectors -- a motley, if generally charming, crew of non-violent obsessives who turned out to be at least as intriguing as the records they collected. Unearthing the very soul of the vinyl community, his book will appeal to a broad spectrum of readers, from die-hard record enthusiasts to fans of pop culture, sharp photography, and music history." - Dust & Grooves.
