Sonic Youth / Signal to Noise

I shot Sonic Youth for the cover of the summer issue of Signal To Noise, working again with Jesse Jarnow on a very thorough and thoughtful story about the band on the eve of their first release for Matador Records, The Eternal. We did the cover shoot here in Brooklyn, in the basement lounge of M. Shanghai Bistro (thank you May), and subsequently followed up in Hoboken at their rehearsal space, and in Northampton, Massachusetts at Kim and Thurston's house. The magazine (with a deluxe 8-page spread) is out now and on the stands - check it out.

Here's a few photographs that didn't make it into the magazine:
