The Birth of Rock and Roll

Featured image is reproduced from The Birth of Rock and Roll, Americana collector Jim Linderman's compendium of vernacular photography purchased at paper and ephemera shows, antique shows, flea markets and eBay. In conversation with Joe Bonomo, Linderman comments, "Just as I would rather
listen to a bootleg or a live performance, I would rather see a candid shot or an authentic image created without artifice. What is presented to us as product is today so manipulated and controlled, virtually all the reality has been airbrushed away. This applies to music, photographs... across the board. The real story is always found beneath the surface. It seems fewer and fewer take the time to look for the real story these days. Product need only be surface deep to sell. Amateur photographers may not have been rebels, as so many of the early musicians were, but they were documenting a life and time without pretense or an agenda."
