30 Studio Portraits of Bruce Springsteen Taken by Lynn Goldsmith in 1978

Bruce Springsteen is more popular than ever; his most recent performances have been among the hottest selling shows of all time. Going back to the roots of his career, these amazing photographs were taken by his ex-girlfriend Lynn Goldsmith in 1978 when Springsteen became the unstoppable savior of rock ‘n’ roll.

Back in a New York studio in 1978, as photographer Lynn Goldsmith made her boyfriend Bruce put on different outfits and let her take his picture, to his decreasing amusement.

“That’s my jacket! Bruce hated that f*cking jacket but I took it off and told him to wear it!” This is an absolutely true quote, from an interview with Lynn at American Songwriter, and explains a whole hell of a lot about, perhaps, those trousers too.

Lynn Goldsmith (born 1948) is an American recording artist, a film director, a celebrity portrait photographer, and one of the first female rock and roll photographers. Lynn’s photographs have appeared on the covers and in publications in many countries for the past 50 years. She has done over 100 album covers. In addition to her editorial work, Goldsmith has also focused on fine art photography with conceptual images. Her photographs are in the collections of The Smithsonian among other museums and her 3D videos created in 1982 are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
