FRANK STEFANKO


FRANK STEFANKO

Living in New Jersey, Frank Stefanko has been making photographs for over fifty years. Self taught as a boy, inspired by film noir movies and the old masters such as Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, and Diane Arbus, he excelled in art and photography both in high school and college.

His work graces the album covers of Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness On The Edge Of Town and The River, Southside Johnny’s Hearts of Stone album cover, and Patti Smith’s The Arista Years 1975/2000 box set cover. Frank’s photographs also appear in Bruce Springsteen’s Live 75/85, Greatest Hits, Tracks and The Essential Bruce Springsteen.

Frank is the author of the book Days of Hope and Dreams / An intimate portrait of Bruce Springsteen, which has recently been released in the second edition. He is also the author of Patti Smith / American Artist which features beautiful images of a young emerging artist, Ms Smith, from 1970 to 1980.

Frank’s work has toured in two museum shows, Bruce Springsteen, Troubadour of the Highway, which, at the time, broke attendance records at The Frederick Weisman Museum in Minneapolis, The Cranbrook Museum near Detroit, The Experience Music project in Seattle, and The Newark Museum in New Jersey. On 2012 the Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock Photography has toured several museums in the US.

Beyond his rock photography, Frank has been assembling a portfolio of landscape photographs that feature places where the footprint of man has not yet touched. In addition, Frank is working on compiling his collection of vintage photographs, mostly from the New York underground of the CBGB’s, Max’s Kansas City era. Shot in the Seventies, these photos feature individuals, locations, and scenes from a unique era that nurtured art, music, and poetry.
