Andy Rosen’s photographs from the 1970s and 1980s feature strongly in our upcoming exhibition Didn’t We Have a Nice Time. 

While we were reviewing material for the show, Andy showed me one of his personal favourites, taken of Bruce Springsteen in 1985. It’s a great photograph, and I wanted to share it with you.

Andy tells it: “Bruce had just finished the Born in the USA Australian tour. A few band members and roadies joined him for a sail around Sydney Harbour. Helicopters were flying overhead trying to get pictures. I was a personal guest of the yacht owner and the only photographer on board. Bruce didn’t know I was a professional photographer, and I knew I only had one shot at getting my picture. So I loaded up a few Nikons and stashed them below deck at the hatch furthest from the steering wheel. I knew he would be offered a chance to steer. When he did I raced below deck, popped up out the hatch and made the shot.”
