Steve Joester’s journey as an award winning photographer and artist is a reﬂection of our time. As an art student in England, Joester was inﬂuenced by “pop” art and the impact of photography on a generation that grew up with David Bailey and “Blow Up”. In the 70’s & 80’s, his work with the Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Sting, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, Neil Young, Queen and The Clash, to name a few, established him as a leading photographer of rock artists and their live performances.
