A thrilling and candid portrait of the band that transformed rock and roll in the 1980s - now reuniting for their biggest tour to date - from a preeminent photographer.
From 1978 until 1983, photographer Lynn Goldsmith had unparalleled access to Sting, Stewart Copeland, and Andy Summers - The Police - during their meteoric and sometimes turbulent rise to fame.
The intimate portrait of the band that emerges from Goldsmith's colour and black-and-white photographs is the closest we will come to being behind the scenes and on the road with The Police during this heady time.
The Police: 1978 - 1983, published to mark the band's thirtieth anniversary and accompanying world tour, includes dozens of never-before- published photographs of The Police and individual portraits of each of its principal players. Goldsmith's close working relationship with the band shines through in every image.
Quotes by and about The Police accompany the photographs throughout the book. A first-person narrative by Lynn Goldsmith explores the emotional currency The Police still have 30 years after their inception.
