Thurston Moore for The Fly

FlyAwards__0001 copy_E.jpg

Photographed backstage at The Fly awards at The Forum last month, this total ledge came up to our makeshift studio and happily, amongst total chaos, noise and distraction, posed for this front cover like a beacon of serenity amid an ocean of barking sea lions. He was much warmer, giving and frankly happier thank I thought he might be (based on nothing at all) and I'm grateful for the exchange, especially given the circumstances. Shot on a Hasselblad, with Elinchrom lighting in a tight space with 15 people staring.
