Since 2005, Swiss photographer Matthias Willi and journalist Olivier Joliat have been developing a photographic project entitled “The Moment After the Show: Rockstars exposed”. In the 144 page publication, the pair has persuaded about 100 bands to pose in front of their camera all sweaty and exhausted, revealing themselves in a way that regular audiences don't generally get to witness.

  1. The Iggy Pop "Behind the Music" is incredible and far the best episode. He's lived such an amazing life. Go Iggy!
