Before Robert K. Elder became an author and editor at the Chicago Sun-Times, he cut his teeth as arts photographer in the 1990s. Slinging a Pentax K1000 camera with a broken light meter, Elder found himself photographing artists such as U2, Pearl Jam, Beck, Joan Baez, Garth Brooks, Marilyn Manson, Rage Against the Machine and Sarah McLachlan.
