“I love “Hard Land” as it seems to evoke a scene from an old cowboy movie to me.” – Frank Stefanko

Our good friend Frank Stefanko has been photographing his good friend Bruce Springsteen for forty years. This is an image from his most recent shoot, in 2017. Frank tells us: “Hard Land was made in a photo-shoot I did with Bruce at his farm at Colts Neck, New Jersey. Bruce granted me the session in April of 2017 and I was thrilled to capture my friend in some relaxed scenes with his Western clothes which caused me to think, perhaps, he was already channeling his vision for his new album, Western Stars. The 2017 shoot brought things full circle to round off what has been forty years of working with Bruce.”
