Kevin Westenberg

Kevin Westenberg, the American photographer, is renowned for his provocative, electrifying images of world-class musicians. His intense use of light, color and composition produces succulent, visual magic. This electricity, however, has its origin in Kevin’s lifelong romance with the adventure of rock and roll.

Meeting Elvis Presley on the film set of ’It Happened at the World’s Fair’ at the age of 4, ensured that Kevin would always be deeply moved by music and musicians. Weaned on the fabulous 60’s radio pop; seeing the post-Vietnam adolescent explosion of The Stones, The Who, The Beatles, Hendrix, and Bob Marley concerts; not forgetting all of the supergroups of 70’s soul; fueled by bottles of Jack and American pie,

Westenberg joined his generation in the psychedelic exploration of music, life and light. A decade of passion and decadence helped inspire a photographic style. Architecture school brought a new dimension to his life and after 8 years, he gained a Masters degree. But British punk in the early eighties was irresistible to him and he moved to Europe. He bought his first camera in Denmark and started practicing on fashion models in Barcelona.

In the UK, his first published pieces in The NME (1984) shaped and secured a photographic future in the music and entertainment world.  Kevin’s images range from stunning to rebellious. But most critically, they capture the romance and beauty of our collective human adventure.

Kevin has also worked with creatives from the performing arts: David Lynch, Luc Besson, The Coen Brothers, Billy Bob Thornton, Sean Penn, Jean Luc Godard, Ethan Hawke, Nicole Kidman, Tom Stoppard and the late Alan Rickman.
