Behind the Photos




Veteran photographer Jeff Fasano has 1 day to go for his Kickstarter campaign—to publish his first fine-art book: AMERICANA PORTRAIT SESSIONS.

For a $100 pledge, you can choose to get an autographed copy of his book and a choice of a signed B&W Silver Gelatin Print (one of six B&W photos). There are also options for one of three Color Fine Art Pigment Photo Prints. Today, we feature the back story of one of the prints.

The War and Treaty

We talked with Jeff Fasano about his portrait of THE WAR AND TREATY:

This was shot when The War and Treaty hosted the Gospel Brunch at AmericanaFest at City Winery. It was a Sunday morning show. I was backstage and told them I had done all the photos hanging on the walls at City Winery. They say, “Oh, wow! These are great.” I asked them if they wanted me to take some photos of them and they wanted to try something different.

I actually met them earlier at Bonnaroo. I was on the press list for portraits and their representative said, “I have this husband and wife called The War and Treaty”—would you like to take photos of them. It’s funny because at that time I had no idea who they were. We realized we all lived in Nashville, and then I saw them around town all the time.

Their music is great—they both can really sing. Michael has an amazing voice. They both sing so well. And they are really sweet people.

To pledge your support for Jeff Fasano’s book AMERICANA PORTRAIT SESSIONS, you can now pre-order this first comprehensive photography book of the Artists of Americana Music via his Kickstarter project. Many of these portraits were photographed at AmericanaFest in Nashville.

Here’s the link to order the book and see the project:

For every generation, a photographer emerges who captures the essence of the soul of the music that defines that generation. Jeff Fasano’s indelible images of the Americana music format have become part of the fabric of this amalgam of music that includes the best of storytellers whose music emotionally moves the listener—and transcends the life we live.

Jeff Fasano’s unparalleled access to stars like Sheryl Crow, Judy Collins & Stephen Stills, John Oates, The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, Rhiannon Giddens, Vince Gill, Keb’ Mo’, Lucinda Williams, Margo Price, Jewel, The McCrary Sisters 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.
