Visual portraits of the iconic spaces where your favorite records were recorded

Mark Howard has worked with Bob Dylan, Neil Young, R.E.M., Willie Nelson, U2, the Neville Brothers, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Marianne Faithfull, and the Tragically Hip

Producer Mark Howard has always made unique records. For Howard, it's not just about the recording process -- making great music is also about creating unique, comfortable environments designed to bring out the best in the artist. To this end, he's spent a career seeking out architecturally remarkable spaces in which to make albums. In Recording Icons / Creative Spaces, you're invited behind the curtain to watch these music industry legends create. Using a non-invasive photographic approach, employing a Nikon time-lapse camera to capture these in-studio moments, Howard captures the hits as they happened, in a treasure trove of non-posed, natural images. You're invited to travel the world with him and watch as he creates the beautiful spaces and inspiring atmosphere where the magic of classics by Bob Dylan, U2, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and many more actually happened.

It will inspire readers to think out of the box, and hopefully try out a remote setup with their gear in unintimidating, non-traditional, and informal spaces like Mark has." -- Tape Op Magazine
