Connections: Photographing The Who

Jan 31, 2017

Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer William Snyder is known for his work capturing newsmakers, but it turns out that his passion isn't necessarily photographing world leaders. It's The Who.

In 1993, Snyder photographed Pete Townshend, when Townshend was involved with the Broadway production of his rock opera, Tommy. Since then, Snyder has toured with the band, and captured some classic images. We have a little fun talking about the craft of photographing great bands, and previewing a new exhibit at RIT.
