Henry Ruggeri is an outstanding music photographer. His career started with a particular event: in 1989 he wanted to meet his favorite band THE RAMONES, so during the Italian leg of their tour, he simulated to be a professional photographer and managed to meet the band backstage. Their official fan club is Italian and was present (the only one worldwide acknowledged by their management), and asked him to join them and tour all over Europe.

He never stopped to be a professional photographer ever since. In early days, he divided his time spend with the management of a live club in Italy, but later left the club to dedicate his work to a photography carrier only, in 2005. He has since photgraphed most of the greatest musicians of the last 2 decades: U2, Rolling Stones, James Brown, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Depeche Mode, Iron Maiden, Kiss, Metallica, Oasis and many more. His pictures have been published in magazines all around the world. Since 2007, he is the official photographer of Virgin Radio Italy, the leading musical website in Italy and one of the most important in Europe.
