Dust & Grooves is a photo and interview project documenting vinyl collectors in their most intimate environment: their record room.
With a website launched in October 2008 by Brooklyn-based professional photographer and vinyl addict Eilon Paz, D&G profiles individual collectors from all over the world in their natural environment – usually at home with their personal collections. Each subject is interviewed in depth about their devotion to vinyl, then each conversation is paired with a beautiful series of portrait photographs by Eilon that capture the heart and soul of this passionate avocation. Together, words and images tell the story of the love affair between collector and collection, and preserve a record of music that otherwise might be lost.
The man behind this project is in need of donations to help produce his first ever book. All donations can be made to the Dust & Grooves Kickstarter page.
