Justin Borucki

In the fall of 1992, sixteen-year-old Justin Borucki enrolled in a high school photography class. Though he initially signed up just to fill a hole in his schedule, Justin immediately realized that he was destined to go through life with a camera in his hand. Wanting to document the Staten Island punk rock scene for himself and his friends, Justin started snapping away at local shows. Soon his shots began gracing album and CD covers, and popping up in the pages of underground zines.

After further study at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Justin moved to Brooklyn and dedicated himself to honing his craft. From 1999 to 2004, Justin worked as a photo editor at Harris Publications for their Guitar World and Revolver titles. Then, in 2004, he went out on his own.

Though he continues to be a highly sought-after music photographer, his scope of work continues to expand. Whether he’s shooting from a helicopter over Tokyo or taking portraits of Metallica backstage in the Netherlands, Justin’s sense of humor, down-to-earth personality and palpable enthusiasm for his craft is always reflected in the images he captures.

Two of Justin’s early photographs are on a multi-city tour with "Who Shot Rock and Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present," the first major museum exhibition to acknowledge the creative and collaborative role of rock-and-roll photographers in the history of rock music. Justin is one of the youngest photographers in the show, and he considers it a great honor to be recognized as someone who has contributed to the visual history of rock.

Justin lives in New Jersey with his wife and children.
