Over the course of her long career, photographer Deborah Feingold has often had to improvise: Her darkrooms have included a Boston prison cell and her apartment’s shower stall. The result, however, is extraordinary, with an oeuvre of subjects that define culture, including Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Johnny Depp. Tonight, Feingold previews her new book, Music, to be released on September 30, which chronicles her epic rock photographs. Having lingered on the New York scene since 1976, her images capture greats like B.B. King, James Brown, and Madonna at their most candid. Feingold chats tonight with Anthony DeCurtis of Rolling Stone, telling the stories behind her iconic shots, like the time she secretly captured Mick Jagger, hands to his head with anxiety, after she told him the camera was broken.
