I photographed Gold Panda and the cover / artwork for his new album, ‘Good Luck and Do Your Best’, out in May on City Slang . With design by Dan Tombs, the ‘Time Eater’ single artwork was also taken from the same collection of images, collated by Derwin and I over the course of two weeks spent in Japan.
The album cover image was taken in Kyoto, and the ‘Time Eater’ single cover image near Rainbow Bridge in Tokyo. I took the portrait of Derwin on the Tokyo subway.
I was so very inspired by Derwin’s and my time in Japan; taking photographs together in a place as affecting and striking as Japan was an incredible experience. Collaborating on such a creative project with Derwin, and then with Dan for the design element, was a heartening and exciting process.
