Naked Eye: An Interview with Ethan Russell

Steve Matteo, Long Island Pulse, 26 October 2009

PHOTOGRAPHER ETHAN Russell prefers to let his pictures do his talking. In a rare interview, the only photographer to do an album cover for the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Who, who took the last pictures of the Beatles together, and author of the seminal, criminally out-of-print Dear Mr. Fantasy has just published his latest book, Let It Bleed: The Rolling Stones, Altamont, and the End of the Sixties (Springboard). Russell was also involved in the just released reissue of the Rolling Stones classic live album Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out: The Rolling Stones In Concert 40th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set (ABKCO), now available as a three-CD/DVD expanded edition.
