Picturing the Record Collector: Dust & Grooves by Eilon Paz
Born out of his successful website of the same name photographer Eilon Paz has now collected a healthy sampling of his portraits of record collectors from around the world in his debut book; Dust and Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting.
130 vinyl collectors are featured, each in the friendly confines of their record rooms. The first section of the books focuses on the visuals while the second part features 12 in-depth interviews which lets us in as to “what motivates record collectors to keep digging for more records.”
The party starts on Record Store Day, with the book being the “Official Book of Record Store Day,” with a launch event at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn featuring sets from over 20 dj’s.
Welcome to vinyl heaven!
