Revealing The Soul’s Essence
Veteran photographer Jeff Fasano is seeking to publish his first fine-art book: AMERICANA PORTRAIT SESSIONS.
Like the stories these songwriters weave, Fasano’s photographs find a common thread that sets them apart and makes them unique—while telling a story entirely his own—through his distinctive lens.
This book tells the story of one of the world’s greatest musical genres. It’s the first photography book to take a comprehensive view of Americana music and its history.
“Within the heart of the Americana music movement beats the spirit of authenticity. With reverence for the original roots of American music of all styles…the artists who are part of this movement represent the heritage of the past the present and the future. Their recordings remind us of our traditions and reimagine how music can evolve and move forward.
Jeff Fasano has been documenting the seminal legendary artists, as well as the contemporary ones at the forefront of the Americana music scene for most of his career.
Like the music…his images are authentic, revealing, and give us a penetrating look into the soul of his subjects. His photography captures their personality with honesty and unguarded truthfulness.”
This is a lovingly curated book that tells the story of one of the world’s greatest musical genres, AMERICANA. It’s the first photography book to take a comprehensive view of Americana and Jeff’s unparalleled access to stars like Sheryl Crow, The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, Rhiannon Giddens, Margo Price, and Kris Kristofferson gives it the kind of authority that comes from vast experience. It’s a book of intimate portraits that reveals the strength, heart, soul, and musical genius of these great artists.
Jeff Fasano continues to document Nashville’s vibrant music scene and the photos that make- up Americana Portrait Sessions come out of this inspired work that he has created in over two decades.
