Despite its high price, the lens grabbed the attention of magazine photographers. In 1957 it was used to capture an ultra wide view of a Senate hearing. Flash forward to 1962 when the first consumer grade fisheye lens became available and you start to see it used to document musicians. The iconic lens was used to capture The Beatles during the British Invasion, at Woodstock, and on iconic album covers throughout the ‘70s. In the ‘80s it became heavily used in punk rock, skateboarding and hip hop. In the ‘90s it became a signature look in a number of music videos for artists like Busta Rhymes, TLC, and Missy Elliot.
