WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — The photo project began nearly 15 years ago when photographer Anna Gabriel was helping her father Peter Gabriel with one of his album designs.
Gabriel chose to photograph extreme close-ups of the eyes of musicians such as Sting, Annie Lennox, David Byrne, Youssou N’Dour, Pussy Riot’s Nadya, Debbie Harry, Noel Gallagher, Tom Petty, Mick Fleetwood, Michael Stipe, Brian Eno and her father Peter Gabriel.
She has collected the photos in a book called “Eye-D: Portraits by Anna Gabriel”.
Gabriel unveiled some of the photographs at the Morrison Hotel Gallery which was founded by Henry Diltz, who named the gallery after his iconic photograph of The Doors. The gallery specializes in fine art music photography.
