Brad Elterman: Dog Dance

Published by Damiani
Edited and designed by Sandy Kim. Foreword by Olivier Zahm.

Photographer Brad Elterman (born 1956) was at the center of Los Angeles’ late 1970s and early 80s punk scene. He was backstage at the most legendary of concerts and present at the craziest parties. Among the stars Brad circulated with were Joan Jett, Bob Dylan, Duran Duran, The Dead Boys, Blondie and the Ramones; other celebrities from that era who crossed his lens include Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton and John Travolta. Employing an immediate, snapshot-like style, Elterman’s photos effortlessly convey the ambiance of a scene whose particular type of gritty glamour has become increasingly influential in recent years. From the platinum-tinted shag hairdos of teenage glam rockers to the bare-breasted shenanigans of party girls, this is a pre-AIDS and pre-rehab world, where the sun never sets and the antics never end. Elterman saw it all, and his images faithfully record that world as he knew and experienced it. Always drawn to young emerging talent, Brad asked rising photographer Sandy Kim to trawl his archive and edit his photos into a book that would speak to today’s readership. The resulting publication is somewhere between a tabloid and a zine, mixing rock and punk stars with mainstream legends. Olivier Zahm, editor and founder of Purple, provides a foreword.

NY Times: Brad Elterman's Dog Dance Presents 'A Looser, More Unhinged Los Angeles'

NY Times: Brad Elterman's Dog Dance Presents 'A Looser, More Unhinged Los Angeles'In this weekend's New York Times, Maxwell Williams writes, "If Rodney Bingenheimer was the mayor of the Sunset Strip, the photographer Brad Elterman was its Cecil Stoughton, capturing jaw- and trou-dropping moments of late-1970s excess."

Brad Elterman: Dog Dance

Brad Elterman: Dog DanceIn his foreword to Dog Days, Brad Elterman's new book of photographs of the late 70s and early 80s Los Angeles punk scene, Olivier Zahm writes, "The magic of Brad's photography is that he's able to steal a picture, all while creating a natural, playful, and surprising intimacy with his subject. Los Angeles, as well as his bungalow, "Villa Le Reve," are his playgrounds, and everyone he shoots rises to the occasion: he captures Robert Plant playing soccer in his underwear, Peter Frampton sailing shirtless, Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols swimming in the photographer's own pool, Joan Jett lounging in her room at the Tropicana Motel… and of course plenty of scantily-clad girls around swimming pools and at house parties. The way he captured the world around him at this time is still a reference for modern style." Featured image—of The Runaways' Cherie Currie and her twin, Marie, surrounding Vicki Razor Blade from Venus And The Razor Blades in 1977—is reproduced from Brad Elterman: Dog Dance. continue to blog
