The New New Pornographers

The New Pornographers have just released a new album, Brill Bruisers, and I’m pleased to say that I shot the publicity photos. I traveled with the band in 2001 and did a couple of group shots then and have been listening ever since. 

The label asked that I come up with some ideas for pictures as they hoped to push things a little visually and conceptually. The band was game, doing a Beatles Avedon homage for one shot, and a cliche family portrait wearing button-down white shirts for another, but drew the line at my idea of a formal band shot with one member taking a hit off of a bong. One of the guys explained, “It’s bad enough crossing the border from Canada with the name ‘New Pornographers’, then add to that a quick Google search that shows photos of us smoking a bong.â€
