Sten + Lex at Rising Love, Vol II
Probably one of the most popular photos I’ve ever taken was this image of a Sten + Lex poster in front of the club Rising Love back in 2009. The short lived poster was beautiful and I must not have been the only one to think so, as it’s the image of mine that I’ve found both online and in print without permission more often than any other. I’d been hearing chatter that they were meant to put up a new piece on the same wall so when I spied a photo that JB Rock posted online, I knew I had to go and check it out. It’s interesting what a difference 2 years makes, no? Done on their fully formed poster stencil style, the image came out perfectly on this sunny day. Photographing these pieces is always interesting because the optic illusion of the portrait always comes out so clearly in the photographs. With the much dried climate over the next few months I’m sure this time the poser will hold up beautifully, but still…pass by while you can because you never know!
