PhotoActive 134: Mike Hipple Lived Through That

On the latest PhotoActive podcast, we talk to Mike Hipple about his book of 90s musicians, Lived Through That.

We love a good photo project at the PhotoActive podcast, and our latest episode highlights a great one. We sat down with Mike Hipple, a Seattle-based photographer and author of the book _Lived Through That: 90s Musicians Today_. I love this book (and his previous one, _80s Redux!_) because it catches up with familiar and not-so-familiar musical faces and what they’re doing now. Rock ‘n’ Roll photography is (rightfully) focused on the performance, the energy, and often the youthful verve of musicians in the heydays of their craft. But as we know, music ebbs and flows, styles go out of favor, and many of those same rockers move on to other things. It’s a book of portraits of the likes of Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Chris Difford (Squeeze), Martha Davis (The Motels), and more, with short interviews about their lives now.

Listen to the episode here: Episode 134: Mike Hipple Lived Through That.

And buy Mike’s books! They’re fabulous.
