Today I received an email promo from Stephanie Pfriender Stylander’s studio. What I like most about this promo is that it is designed like a website. It made me curious to click through to explore SPSCOLLECTIVE more.
Wednesday, September 7th, 7-9pm
powerHouse Arena, 37 Main St., Brooklyn, New York
Author: Mark Yarm
Photo Editor: Christine Reilly
Don your Docs for the launch of Mark Yarm’s definitive account of the grunge era as told by the musicians, producers, managers, record executives, video directors, photographers, reporters, club owners, roadies, scenesters, and hangers-on who lived and witnessed it firsthand. Rob Sheffield, author of Talking to Girls About Duran Duran and Love is a Mixtape joins him in conversation.
The book’s launch event is ranked No. 6 on Time Out New York’s list of 101 things to do in NYC in the fall.
I get floods of promos, but the ones I always open are from Carol LeFlufy at Eye Forward, especially when they are for Frank Ockenfels. Frank recently updated images in his 2Boys gallery, an ongoing series with his two sons. I worked with Frank several times at FHM magazine and was continually inspired by his ability to still be able to play and be artistic.

Over the past year, I worked on a photo research project seeking out and securing pictures from the grunge era for author, Mark Yarm.
I collaborated with photographers, managers, band members, etc. to hunt down specific moments or talent and never-before-published images in their film archives. The organization of their archives and their willingness to hunt through film for exclusive pictures for the book was remarkable. I mainly work in digital formats now so it was refreshing to get back to looking at film and contact sheets again.
Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge will be published by Crown Archetype on September 6, 2011. Available on Amazon.
