Hi there! 
Eilon Here! Thanks for visiting. Please read on. 

Dust & Grooves: Adventures in Record Collecting is an inside look into the world of vinyl record collectors in the most intimate of environments—their record room. It all started out several years ago as nothing more than a way for me to make use of my idle hours. Adrift in Brooklyn after emigrating from Israel, I thought it might be fun to start taking photos of people whose record collections were both larger and weirder than mine.

Adopting this as my personal project, I began traveling the world, from Australia to Cuba and Argentina to Ghana, in pursuit of intriguing and memorable subjects. Unearthing the very soul of the vinyl community, the assembly of portraits I created quickly turned into the Dust & Grooves website.

In the summer of 2012, I launched a Kickstarter campaign that funded a road trip to shoot collectors throughout the American heartland, and since then, the project has been embraced by many friends and supporters who have volunteered to work with me along the way. Since then, Dust & Grooves has expanded even further, complementing the website’s cloud with a physical book that profiles over 130 vinyl collectors with photographic essays and in-depth interviews.

Dust & Grooves has engaged and connected the underground community of record collectors for 8 years now. As well as becoming a go-to place for vinyl lovers, it maintains the integrity and history of vinyl, as well as the musical heritage that goes along with every record in these collections.

Join me here on this continuing journey to unearth the world's most passionate vinyl collectors

* Until I create an updated video for Patreon, please take a look at the Kickstarter video I made a few years ago. It is still a great video that accurately describes the what Dust & Grooves is all about.

Goals
$188 of $2,000 per month
Dust & Grooves has always been a labour of love project, and my goal is to keep it that way. 

Reaching this goal will allow me to keep investigating, document, interview, photograph, edit and proof read new features on the Dust & Grooves website. I intend to post one new feature each month! 

I believe ALL content on the website should be open for all, without restrictions and free of annoying promotional ads or banners. 

If Dust & Grooves is a frequent destination for you, please consider becoming a patron.
