‘The music scene is fragile’: Pooneh Ghana on photographing Idles, Olivia Rodrigo and more
The LA-based photographer’s world was turned upside down by Covid. Now she sees musicians facing growing pressure
“I try to approach music photography in the mindset of a superfan,” says Pooneh Ghana. The Los Angeles-based photographer, 32, has been documenting the live music scene since she was a teenager.
Her specialty is capturing musicians on stage in front of sweaty faces pouring over stage barriers – and also intimate candids of them on the road between shows. It is more interesting that way, she says.
