3. Two smaller format pieces at a low launch price.
We also wanted to do something for those new to collecting limited edition photographs, and for those who are looking for something in a smaller than usual size to fit a smaller wall space. With this in mind, Eric has selected two images of Bruce taken in 1975 to offer in smaller formats/larger editions, at a substantially reduced introductory launch price of USD 750 (just under £600 at current FX rates).
One features Bruce checking out the guitars in a shop window in NYC, and the other is a beautiful close up portrait – of a grinning Bruce – taken in July 1975 outside The Record Plant in New York. Eric recalls the background to this little known photograph:
“During the last month of recording the album Born to Run, Bruce would spend nearly every waking hour at the Record Plant on West 44th Street in New York. The last week of finalizing the album was particularly intense, and given the mood I knew not to interfere.
This image was made a few days before Bruce finished the album. I showed up and waited in the lobby of the building, and finally left to go home. Bruce suddenly appeared and we talked briefly – he was amused by the custom made T-shirt I was wearing which had the words ”BORN FOR FUN” emblazoned on the front in red, white and blue.
In the hot July sunlight, I got a few portraits of him grinning before he went back in to work some more on the song “Jungleland”. In a few days the album would be finished.”
