One thing Talia was looking for in these images of Larry And His Flask was to show the band without all the instruments and usual stylized look that they’ve had in previous photoshoots. I think we got what they were looking. It’s funny when photographing larger groups of people and especially bands I just sort of think about them as a larger engagement session.
I shot these all around Greenpoint which is awesome because I’ve been wanting to do more work in the neighborhood. I really wanted to capture a “classic” band photograph, similar to what you might of seen in the 70’s. The first black and white image is exactly what I wanted. The last image is a total homage to Jeff Newsom, if you are unfamiliar with his work certainly give it a look!
