"[Lynn Goldsmith's] latest book, Music in the '80s, dives into over 150 beloved rockstars of the 1980s-with recognizable figures like Bob Marley, David Bowie, Elton John, Grace Jones, and more harmoniously appearing in the melodic compilation. The book boasts yellow-hued, stoic portraiture throughout while louder-than-life images-both serious and vulnerable-make their mark in noir, too...Continuing to march to the beat of her own drum, Music in the '80s is Goldsmith's evocative love letter to a most beloved decade." -V MAGAZINE

"Photographer Lynn Goldsmith's Music In The '80s (released in September) is not just another coffee table collection of rock 'n roll photography. Flip through a few pages and you'll find, among the 250 vivid captures of the Grammy-winning crowd, something more complex-the work of a thoroughly versatile portraitist and documentarian.The operative word here is "versatile." Goldsmith's imagery resolutely defies pigeonholing. Once asked to characterize her "style" Goldsmith replied, "I don't have a style...to me, the camera is a tool. It helps me to manifest my ideas..." Her latest monograph showcases that creative independence. And she couldn't have chosen a better era in which to do it than the "genre-bending" epoch of the '80s." -RANGEFINDER

"Music in the '80s" (Rizzoli) showcases the dazzling breadth of the Me Decade: The Rolling Stones to The Boss; Herbie Hancock to Run DMC; Madonna to Goldsmith's old college pal Iggy Pop; The Pretenders to, yes, Barry Manilow." -NEW YORK POST

"MTV originated in the 1980s, making musicians more image conscious than ever, and shooting on assignment...Lynn Goldsmith covered the decade like few photographers have. Now the visualizations of Goldsmith's indelible music memories are assembled and collected together in a single volume, Music in the '80s (Rizzoli)...This colossal coffee table book is expansive enough to encapsulate the rambunctious decade that gave us New Wave, Punk, Hip-hop, Heavy Metal, the ballads of Billy Joel and beyond. At 352 pages, the 13x10 inches tome is big enough to hold Goldsmith's spontaneous, in-performance and posed portraits of a cornucopia of talents, including: Bruce Springsteen, Boy George, the Eurythmics, Carlos Santana, Carly Simon, Grace Jones, Dolly Parton, Eric Clapton, Frank Zappa, The Go-Gos, Iggy Pop, James Taylor, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Joan Jett, Johnny Cash, Kiss, Linda Ronstadt, Lou Reed, Madonna, Meat Loaf, Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, Sting, The Ramones, Rod Stewart, Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Talking Heads/David Byrne, Bono (who, in the book's introductory quotes, calls the '80s: "The decade taste forgot") and so on." -ROCK CELLAR MAGAZINE

"From new wave to heavy metal, Iggy Pop to Elvis Costello, music in the '80s was enormously influential. Drawing from Lynn Goldsmith's 50-year tenure as an award-winning photographer of concerts, studio portrait sessions and musicians, this book will appeal to anyone who lived through (or simply loves) the decade." -HUDSON VALLEY MAGAZINE
