When describing the photographs within the book, Kravitz said, ‘Photographs are silent, but these are not. David’s photographs are singing, shouting, even screaming. They’re filled with the visceral thrill that he and I were both feeling.’ Hindley added, ‘As a musician, Lenny was letting it rip. As a photographer, my charge was to do the same.’
