Photographer Robert Lundberg Launches New Podcast, Episode One Out Now!
Today photographer Robert Lundberg launches his new series, Uncontaminated Sound: The Interviews, via Pure Grain Audio. For the first episode, featuring notable and buzzworthy comedian Mike Cannon, Lundberg speaks with Cannon about his process and path which sets the tone for the series. Filmed in New York City and Boston, the video series will be released bi-weekly. The series focuses on having raw and uncut conversations with contemporary artisans, entertainers, musicians and more.
Robert Lundberg is an acclaimed music, street, and fine art photographer. Originally hailing from Massachusetts and currently residing in New York, he takes his unique and candid style from the street into the world of music. With his documentary series, Uncontaminated Sound, Lundberg captures comedians, musicians, fine artists of all mediums, and actors in their truest form behind the scenes. This "Fly on the wall" approach has captured the little moments that the world rarely sees of performers before or after engaging with their audiences; bringing a special glimpse into the world. Lundberg differs from a lot of current day music photographers as he likes to capture the artists in their truest form. His ongoing series Uncontaminated Sound goes behind the scenes to catch the performer before they take the stage.
The series has featured the likes of Macklemore's Gemini tour featuring Eric Nally (formerly of Foxy Shazam) and Xperience, Louie Anderson, Sinbad, Ron English, We Are Scientists, Jukebox the Ghost, Ben Lanz & Kyle Resnick (The National/ Beirut), Spiral Stairs (Pavement), Robert Schwartzman (Rooney), Rufus Wainwright, Dead Meadow, Kevin Allison (The State), Geographer and more. His style is best described as 'raw, organic and gonzo,' as he brings out the spirit of his subjects in the photos. Lundberg's work has been featured in the likes of Huffington Post, Paste Magazine and beyond. His work has been showcased at the Clio Art Fair (2017), Uncontaminated Sound (2018), Uncontaminated Sound II (2019), Center of Photography Woodstock (2020), and is gearing up for the next immersive photographic and music showcase for the third edition of Uncontaminated Sound this year.
