Steve Double has spent nearly three decades documenting musical movements, and the players that made them happen. From '90s grunge with Nirvana, to moody English rock with Radiohead, Double’s portraits of the emerging musicians are interesting in depicting the changing waves of what was popular – Jarvis Cocker, then Beastie Boys, then Daft Punk, oh my!

Of course that’s not to say that his subjects were flash-in-the-pan celebrities (note the lack of Fergie), dude has a knack for recognising talent with longevity. He also seems to have had some wild times along the way, like getting wasted with Nick Cave, waiting five hours to take one photo of the Spice Girls (well worth it, we reckon) and spending five days travelling around in a van with Nirvana.

He's also done album artwork for Peter Gabriel and James Blunt (don't hold that against him) and portraits of some of the UK's greatest actors including Christopher Lee and Colin Firth, which earned him a permanent collection at Britain's National Portrait Gallery.
