Brooklyn-based music photographer Ebru Yildiz’s portraits and concert photos regularly appear in venues including Pitchfork, NPR, and the New York Times. Complex has lauded Yildiz as one of “The 50 Greatest Music Photographers Right Now.”
Yildiz was a long-time regular at the beloved underground venue Death By Audio, where she documented its growth from a fledgling guitar pedal effects company and recording space to a DIY community and proving ground for emerging artists like Ty Segall, Future Islands, and A Place to Bury Strangers. When its building was taken over by VICE Media in 2014, Death By Audio became yet another casualty of Brooklyn’s rapid-fire gentrification, but Yildiz’s new self-published book We’ve Come So Far: The Last Days of Death By Audio celebrates the energy and vitality she experienced there.
