Between 1989 and 2001, Hester Doove photographed internationally renowned pop artists for Muziekkrant OOR and other magazines. Often the circumstances were not too favorable: most of the time there only were a few minutes for the photo sessions, backstage or in and around hotels. But her love for music and the musicians she met were a major motivator and an important creative source of inspiration for making these portraits.

Music Portraits shows a selection of 60 pop artists from this period including Seal, Barry White, Elvis Costello, Marianne Faithfull, Tori Amos, JJCale, John Hiatt, Suzanne Vega, Joe Jackson, David Byrne, Lenny Kravitz, Susanna Hoffs, Robbie Robertson , Lisa Stansfield, Chris Isaak, Sonic Youth, Youssou N’Dour, Thom Yorke.
