“Tom Waits. Austin Opry House 1977. Tom Waits’ tour of Fall 1977 was a classic in many ways. He had a lighting /staging concept that was stark and elemental, accentuating his rough, stark poetry/ songs…perfect for my style of photography…all abstract and pure form…exactly what I love to shoot. So, I made the most of the opportunity and created one of my favorite performance portraits…” — Photo © copyright 1977 Scott Newton
