the latest shot

eleni mandell for yep roc music


i’m very pleased to have had the opportunity to photograph musician eleni mandell at the end of last year for artwork to illustrate her new album, wake up again. eleni spent time teaching songwriting to inmates at a women’s prison and that experience shaped the songs on the album.

this is the third time i’ve shot eleni, with the first being all the way back in 2004. for this round we actually shot in my living room - and the photo above, my favorite from the day, was shot against the blackboard wall in my office.
