    Cat Stevens: Behind the Scenes, PJ Harvey

Cat Stevens (not that one) takes ace portraits of cool musicians

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Having a name like Cat Stevens must have its negative side, but it’s pretty unforgettable. Luckily, Cat’s photography totally lives up to her very cool name, and nicely complements her large portfolio of consistently brilliant music photography. Seemingly favouring the more art-orientated musicians such as Will Oldham and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, Cat has also captured the the magnificent PJ Harvey during the recording of her last album, Let England Shake. Her candid portraits of PJ in the studio are the kind of perfect, behind-the-scenes shots that fans lust after. Also, be sure to check out her series entitled The Subterraneans that she shot for Angst magazine.
