Don Lawver picked up a Nikon camera in 1976 and never stopped photographing. A four decade career produced some of the most incredible moments captured on film. With help from Beaumonde, Don is opening up his collection for viewing, archival, and purchase.
At age 16, Don bought a ticket to a Led Zeppelin concert in Tampa, Florida. 9 songs in, 1 incredible rainstorm, and then a riot later, he left with his musical soul transformed after viewing what he recalls as Rock Gods. His addiction and hobby would lead him to a 40 year career on the road, photographing some of the world’s biggest artists. Truly, Don produced a catalog on an epic scale. The depth and magnitude of his photo collection offers a fascinating look into four decades of music, stardom, and fashion.
Don's impressive collection of photography covers four decades of legendary music in glorious, vibrant color. Some fast facts:
- Over 400,000 negatives
- 238 genres & subgenres covered
- Thousands of photos published worldwide
