Often when Pat Graham photographs musicians, he'll also pay special attention to their instruments and the stories told by the signs of wearmdash;the chips, scratches, and modifications that personalize the instruments to their owners. Instrument collects the most evocative and beautiful of these photographs of instruments alone and with the musicians who have played, beaten on, bled over, and loved them, including members of The Smiths, Sonic Youth, REM, New Order, Wire, Fugazi, Built to Spill, Band of Horses, Modest Mouse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and many more. Featuring 200 color photographs and first-person anecdotes and stories by the musicians themselves, Instrument will fascinate fans seeking a physical connection to music in a digital age.
