The first 3 New Releases for 2017
Limited Edition & Open Edition Giclee Prints

For the first time ever, and as part of “The 1977 Collection” from Rock Photographer Jim Shive, these first three absolutely unforgettable images are of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band.

It is not often that I will recall which song was being performed in an image, after all it has been over 40 years, but shooting the first image above during "Backstreets" still remains with me. I can recall looking thru the viewfinder and capturing this moment in this classic song.  The middle frame I believe was shot during She's the One", but the 3rd shot, that will remain your guess. 

Either one you choose will make a lasting impression in your own home gallery or office, these new and first time available Giclee prints tell a story, while capturing the one-of-a-kind passion of Bruce and The E Street Band shared night after night together onstage so many years ago way back in 1977.


With only 100 Limited Edition copies available, each image is signed by James Shive and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.

Open Edition prints are also signed by James Shive
