Deadheads, ‘in focus.’ New photobook documents Grateful Dead tour life

Stephen Dorian Miner’s first book, featuring his early work of photographs while on Grateful Dead tour launched its Kickstarter campaign Wednesday and is up and running.

Steering in a slightly different direction, Following The Golden Road | A Visual Tour With The Grateful Dead, will feature pictures documenting tour ‘life.’ Hallways, parking lots and venues across the country; ‘Deadhead life,’ and lifestyle, living on tour will be the focal point of the book. In this case, although they will be present, his live photos of the band will take a ‘backseat.’

Stephen followed in the path of his colleagues, fellow Grateful Dead photographers, and has chosen Kickstarter to help fund this massive undertaking. As well, he utilized their experience and resources to assemble a top-tier team of professionals to help produce the book.

If funding is successful, Stephen hopes to have the book back from the printer and ready to send to contributors by May, 2020.
