The Police on tour photographed by guitarist Andy Summers. In the early 1980s, The Police went on tour accompanied by a photographer who documented the band behind the scenes in a series of candid and striking black and white photos. This talented photographer also happened to be the band’s guitarist, Andy Summers. Yes, it’s true the man responsible for the sparkling unique guitar sound of the Police and the guitar lick from “Every Breath You Take” was not only the backbone of one of the most popular bands of all time, he also possessed a visual gift that allowed him to document and capture the intimacy rawness and spirit of The Police.
