About the Book:

“Indie, Seen” takes readers on a timely journey through the alternative music scene, as captured by music photographer Piper Ferguson. Starting her career in the late 1990s, Piper emerged as a woman photographer in a once male-dominated field. Renowned for conveying dynamic and intimate stories through her lens, Piper’s work yields beautiful, enthralling, and genuinely original photographs. 

The book curates Piper’s most personal and exclusive works into one volume, spanning from her initial portrait sessions with artists like Joe Strummer and Richard Ashcroft to festival performances, behind-the-scenes photoshoots, editorial portrait sessions, and lively nights out. The collection features vibrant images of iconic indie rock performers such as Interpol, The Strokes, Coldplay, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. With over 200 images, “Indie, Seen” is a must-have for every rock and music history enthusiast, offering a chance to indulge in and explore the moments behind the music. Piper was there, and now you can be too.

“Piper’s work is about the moments. The moments happen, and she can make a moment, and no matter where or what’s happening, she always manages to fit in like one of the band. That’s uncommon, and one of the reasons why you see what you see in the pictures.“–Johnny Marr, in his introduction to Indie, Seen.
