Enter to win a photo print of Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin (shown below in Goldmine Magazine‘s February 2018 print edition), signed by photographer Mark Weiss.
Mark Weiss, explains the story behind the photograph:
Robert Plant, June 7, 1977 — “I closed out my high school years by shooting my biggest band yet: Led Zeppelin. The band came to New York City in 1977 for six shows at Madison Square Garden. For the first gig, on June 7, I bought my way in and made it to the front of the stage. While my high school friends were getting dressed for the prom, I was taking photos of Zeppelin! It was the best concert I had ever seen, with a laser show behind Jimmy Page during “Dazed and Confused.” I went straight home afterwards and stayed up all night printing my photos. I brought them to school the next day to sell, and then hopped on a train back to the Garden, where I sold some more out front, dodging the cops along with the T-shirt bootleggers. It was a rush! I took all the money I had made selling my pictures and bought myself an 18th birthday present: a Canon AE-1 camera, with a 70–200mm zoom lens.
”For specific photographs, like this one of Robert Plant, I teamed up with artist Steve Lacy to create a series of original screen prints inspired by my earliest photographs.”
