Photographer: Lisa Johnson

These intimate, never-before-seen photographs from behind the scenes at the 2014 APMAs are pulled from the archives of Lisa Johnson, rock photographer, exclusively here on for the first time. 

“I always have my camera, and when history is in the making all around me, the documentarian kicks in and the moment has to be captured,” Lisa tells AP in an exclusive interview. “The APMAS are probably the most fun anyone will ever have at an awards show ever in the history of the universe, and it was an honor to be there.”
