Willie Nelson, taken at The Opry House, Austin TX in 1977 by photographer Scott Newton from our exclusive collection, The Scott Newton Archive. 

Available as a signed, limited edition photographic print

Photographers notes: This photograph led me to my theory of what good photography is about... 
Essence comes first. Like Plato, I believe the Idea of a thing comes before the thing can manifest in reality...when existence perfectly mirrors underlying essence, like here, push the shutter. 

Here, Willie is burning with, and sending out, creative energy. Music (the sound the Muses make) is hot. The woman is, on some very profound level, warming her soul to the essence that flows from him to her and back. Can you see it? A good photograph reveals underlying, profound truth. Can you feel the flow? Some of you will know what I'm talking about; the rest, I hope to show
