Armed with a macro lens, an incredible eye for detail, and a truly groundbreaking vision, Lisa Johnson's guitar art is taking the world of fine art photography on a rock-and-roll ride. A compilation of Johnsons stunningly personal and intimate portraits, ''108 Rock Star Guitars'' features the guitars of rock-and-roll luminaries, including Les Paul, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Nancy Wilson, Bonnie Raitt, Chrissie Hynde, and many others. Far from still life, Johnsons work conjures the abstract yet also possesses a very sensual and ethereal feel that intentionally illustrates intimate wear-and-tear details. Her unique presentation personifies and captures a musicians true spirit in these musical extensions of the artists body. This ultra-deluxe, coffee-table photo book reveals through Johnsons signature macrophotography style the etchings, totems, and personal touches of each featured guitar. It is a rare perspective that few people outside of the musicians stage crew have seen. Alongside these images, Johnson provides personal anecdotes describing her 17-year journey to photograph these iconic instruments, documenting her travels from the backstage hallways of some the worlds most famous concert venues to the artists private homes. ''108 Rock Star Guitars'' is a music and fine-art photography aficionados private backstage pass to witness up-close these six-stringed works of art.
