For many years Lauren Dukoff has been photographing close friend and musician Devendra Banhart and an extended loose-knit international family of artists who share inspiration variously from folk Tropicalia and each other, as well as a range of other musical influences. This lovely hardcover album collects Dukoff's striking portraits and candid images of Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Bat for Lashes, Feathers, Espers, Vetiver, Bert Jansch, Vashti Bunyan, and many others individually and together in performance and more private spaces. The 150 full-bleed color and black and white photographs are complemented by a foreword by Banhart text and artwork by the musicians, artist biographies, and a digital download featuring songs by some of the artists in the book.
