Shirlaine Forrest has been shooting musicians live for 17 years, and her experience is apparent. In addition to contributions for Rolling Stone, The Guardian, The New York Times, and more, she currently shoots some of the most widely seen music photographs for Getty Images and Wire Image. Her work is heralded by many in and out of the UK, and while her style is straightforward, few have work with as much depth and breadth as she does.
