Bruce Springsteen, aka The Boss, has been a household name for over thirty years and has sold 120 million albums worldwide. STREETS OF FIRE features a collection of Springsteen portraits from the late 70s, immediately after the massive success of his third album, Born to Run and during the creation of his next venture, Darkness on the Edge of Town. This period marked a transitional time in Springsteen's personal life and career - having won critical acclaim and a legion of dedicated fans he would soon emerge as a world-famous rock star.
Accomplished New York-based photographer, Eric Meola, who also shot the iconic album cover image for Born to Run, showcases intimate and moody images that portray The Boss as he was at this time - a young artist at the crossroads of his fledgling career.
With an introductory essay from Meola, and interspersed with lyrics to Springsteen songs, this collectible volume is a privileged look at one of the world's most beloved singer/songwriters.
