AS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND DIRECTOR, PIPER Ferguson’s work is defined by an electric relationship between high style and pure spontaneity. A Northern California native living in Los Angeles for two decades, she has been photographing musicians for twenty-five years, finding unique ways to capture the energy and essence of whoever is in front of her camera. Piper’s photographic journey began with her Brit pop club Cafe Bleu in Hollywood, where she booked the acts and documented every artist who stepped onto the stage. Beyond the vast array of indie musicians in this book, she has also photographed legends such as David Crosby, Merle Haggard, and Billy Idol, and pop stars like Usher and Haim. Her work has appeared in Rolling Stone, Filter, Mojo, and FLOOD magazines, and many other publications, and she has directed music videos for artists including Hepcat, Placebo, Radio 4, and Ed Harcourt. Piper originally came to Los Angeles to work in film, and in 2020, she and her husband, Will Dearborn, formed the production company Noonday Underground to produce and direct their own projects. They are currently developing two narrative feature films, and Piper is also working on a documentary passion project that looks at the early indie scene through the lens of memoir and personal discovery. She Lives in La Cañada, just north of Los Angeles, with her family and two dogs, Joey and Little Guy. They hike to a tipi regularly and still go out to see as many shows and concerts as humanly possible.
