To kick things off they've got one of Peterson's most famous shots of Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder hanging from the stage scaffolding at the band's historic Drop In The Park show at Seattle's Magnuson Park back in 1992.

This print is a 12 x 17 Inches Archival Pigment Print. Timed Limited Edition that is signed & numbered will be closed on September 12th at 3pm.

"These Pearl Jam photos represent over 25 years of working with the band. They make me feel old and young simultaneously. I guess you could say these are part of what I’m now calling “The Grunge Years” which is also the working title of my next book I’m slowly assembling. A lot of this work (in fact most) was self-assigned, and the bands trusted me to do my thing and do well by them. It’s still the agreement we have for post-grunge events like the Pearl Jam Mariners stadium shows I’m shooting this week.

One thing about photographing Pearl Jam is there’s never any flash. They were one of the first bands that made it to the big stages out of the Seattle scene - stupidly I missed out on their club days because I was so focused on Nirvana, Mudhoney and Soundgarden (not a bad thing.) Big stages mean longer lenses, faster film, etc. so it was an opportunity to explore a different style of music photography than I was initially known for. If you like Pearl Jam, and appreciate their history, not to mention owning a part of the legacy that I gifted to the grunge generation, then these are for you." - Charles Peterson
