Whether it’s glitz and glamour or raw reality, by consistently capturing the “real” person behind the “famous” face, Chris Cuffaro brings a new level of emotional depth to the two-dimensional art form of photography. In fact, over the past 35 years, Chris’s signature work with a galaxy of A-List actors, models, athletes and musicians has helped them define their public image while establishing his reputation as one of the most respected photographers in the entertainment industry.
Drawn to the excitement of music as a teenager growing up in Northern California, Chris began his career by shooting local rock shows for fun. He quickly graduated to headlining acts and, since moving to Los Angeles in the early 1980’s, has worked with a succession of top musical artists from pop sensation George Michael and the legendary Iggy Pop to the ground breaking bands Jane’s Addiction, Pearl Jam, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana. Chris’ live and studio images of these musicians and others, including No Doubt, Limp Bizkit, Henry Rollins, Elvis Costello, Fiona Apple, Scott Weiland and Soundgarden, have regularly appeared in Rolling Stone, Spin, RayGun, Vibe, Musician as well as on the covers of more than 300 record albums and CDs.
“Regardless of what I’ve been able to accomplish in the past, there are always new mountains to climb and new borders to cross,” Chris explains. “I’m excited by where I’m going and what lies ahead… by the journey as well as the destination.”
