Baron Wolman, legendary first Rolling Stone Magazine staff photographer :
"Igor! You sure know how to shoot live music! Thanks to Facebook I only recently discovered your photos. They are all amazing, well composed, colorful and very powerful images. There is so much mediocre music photography everywhere these days; your work really stands out as among the best. You clearly have a passion for both photography and music. Stay passionate and keep up the good work! -baron"
