Bruce Talamon photographed R&B royalty from 1972-1982. It changed his life.

On September 12, 2018, TASCHEN Books published BRUCE W. TALAMON,

There have been numerous photo books on jazz, rock & roll, the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Elvis Presley, and Bob Dylan. There has never been a photo book published on soul, R&B and funk music. Until now.


Bruce W. Talamon is a photographer who grew up in the south central neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. His photographs catalog the journeys that have taken him around the world.

For forty years he worked in the film industry as a motion picture still photographer. In the eighties, he was a contract photographer for Time Magazine.

Bruce Talamon’s work has been exhibited in museums nationwide, including the Recording Academy Grammy Museum Experience, the Brooklyn Museum, the Corcoran Gallery (now known as Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at George Washington University) as well as the Hammer Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art, both in Los Angeles.

His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University and Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo (CA2M) in Madrid, Spain.
