Being as we’re unashamed music geeks, we tend to gravitate toward kindred spirits — and thus we were rather chuffed to discover these photos by Israeli photographer Eilon Paz of record collectors with their collections. The images are part of an ongoing project called Dust and Grooves, for which Paz has been criss-crossing the USA and the world, talking to vinyl junkies about their obsession and photographing them with their stashes. We first spotted Paz’s work via KCET, and we were fascinated to explore his website, reading his in-depth interviews with his subjects and marveling at the majesty of their collections. We’ve collected a few of our favorite images after the jump, and there are plenty more at Paz’s website.
