“Falling in love with Seattle and already a big fan of Sub Pop Records, he met Nirvana manager (John Silva) who offered Cuffaro the opportunity of a band photoshoot with their new drummer named Dave. The rest is history!” a press release reads.

Many of his other photos cemented his reputation as the photographer who captured some of the greatest music legends and culture of our time, regularly appearing in Rolling Stone, Spin, RayGun, Vibe, Musician and on more than 300 albums and CDs as part of the artwork.”
