BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN: IN FOCUS 1980-2012
THE STONE PONY: ASBURY PARK, NJ OCTOBER 12TH, 2013

I've been following Bruce Springsteen around since the late 70's, seeing him in concert dozens of times. And so has my friend, Deb Rothenberg. But Deb has been seeing Bruce from a different perspective: as a professional photographer behind the lens. On Saturday, October 12, 2013, her hard work behind those cameras paid off with the triumphant release of "Bruce Springsteen IN FOCUS, 1980-2012, Photographs By Debra L. Rothenberg" at the fabled Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

Bruce Springsteen IN FOCUS, 1980-2012 by Debra L. Rothenberg

From his beginnings at the Stone Pony and other Jersey shore bars to stadiums holding tens of thousands, Debra's book takes you on a visual tour and in my opinion, history, of one of the greatest rockers of all time. And while the book is a definite tribute to Springsteen, it is also to honor his faithful; fans like myself, whose memories of a lifetime are seen in the images on the book's pages.

The Stone Pony, (considered by many "the house that Bruce built"), was full of these faithful on the 12th; many friends and family of Debra, (including fellow alumni of the Rochester Institute of Technology where she honed her trade), and many die-hard Bruce fans from the tri-state area who had been anxiously awaiting the release of this book, having known Debra's collection of work for years.

E Street music played over the PA system, snacks and drinks were passed, and the assembled fans traded their "Bruce stories" while Rothenberg signed 725+ copies of her publication. Later in the evening "Tramps Like Us", a Springsteen cover band rocked into the evening.

Debra's work has appeared in almost every newspaper and monthly periodical nationwide. This book only elevates her status as one of America's premiere photojournalists. I am certain additional collections of her works will be published.

Bruce Springsteen IN FOCUS, 1980-2012 by Debra l. Rothenberg is presented by Turn The Page Publishing and can be purchased at Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com and at Book Towne in Manasquan, NJ. Debra will be promoting and signing her book at additional locations with upcoming dates posted at here link below.
