I’m pretty honored to have this portrait I took of singer-songwriter Eliot Bronson on the front page of his website, and his facebook page, and on the inside cover of his brand new album, Milwaukee. Pretty awesome, right!? Maybe not literally awesome, but it brings me happiness nonetheless.
I shot the cover for his first album and was proud of my use of fake birds in that one. We had a great time on this shoot in an abandoned lot that Eliot found in the middle of a neighborhood in Decatur. We lugged this table and chair out into the tall grass and weeds right as the sun went down behind the trees. There was a bit of excitement earlier in the day trying to procure an old typewriter at the last minute, and I still have a borrowed one in my front closet. (Lara, sorry I still haven’t give you that back.)
I’m sure Eliot’s new record will explode a huge, beautiful rockblast into the ears of the world. Feast your ojos on this here picture. And go check out Milwaukee, released on October 16th!
