Joel Brodsky Photography

Music Work

In a time when the cover art was the only visual representation of their artists for the record buying public, Joel Brodsky’s style helped to create an image for many diverse performers: from Aretha Franklin to Judy Collins, Iggy Pop to Isaac Hayes and Country Joe & the Fish, to Gladys Knight & The Pips. Among the last of his album photo sessions was the first Kiss cover in 1975. Brodsky shot over 400 album covers between 1967 and 1975.
