BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN IN FOCUS 1980-2012 (Turn the Page Publishing), is an unparalleled collection of memorable and iconic Springsteen photography from a perspective only “Jersey Girl” Rothenberg could offer. Selected by the Wall Street Journal as one of its “Best Photo Books for Fall,” called “amazing” by the New York Daily News, this “amazing” (ABC News Radio) book is a must for all fans, chronicling The Boss from “The River” Tour to “The Wrecking Ball” Tour and many Jersey Shore haunts in-between. Through more than three decades of concert tours in national and international arenas and stadiums, as well as impromptu Jersey Shore club appearances at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, the Rum Runner in Sea Bright, and Cheers in Long Branch, Rothenberg has created what the Hollywood Reporter calls “the ultimate look at a man who … is ‘always grinning’ whenever he is captured in his happy place – the stage.”

In addition to the exhibit, a portion of proceeds from all book sales go to the Alzheimers Association (, Parkinsons Disease research (, and breast cancer research (
