Pearl Jam through the eye of Lance Mercer
Lance Mercer, born and raised in Seattle, started photographing the local music scene at the age of thirteen. He graduated from the Seattle Central Community College commercial photography program in 1987 and became a full-time freelance photographer in 1991. Because of his involvement with
orthwest musicians he was invited to tour with Pearl Jam from 1992 to 1995 as their official photographer. This work subsequently enabled him to work as a photographer with many other well-known musical artists. He has photographed many album covers for such clients as Epic Records, Columbia Records, Capitol Records, Warner Brothers, Geffen, and A&M Records. His photos have been published in Rolling Stone, Spin, Time, Vanity Fair, and Alternative Press.
