Tom Petty photographed in his NYC hotel room on 3 May 1989

Harry Borden recalls the shoot: “This was my third commission from the NME. I remember the writer commenting that I was obviously making progress having been given my first transatlantic rock-star to photograph in New York. His label gave me a copy of his record Full Moon Fever and I played “Free Fallin'”constantly. Panicking in his cluttered hotel room, I ended up placing him in front of the giant television in a cabinet. I took a total of two rolls—24 pictures in total. This was shot on Kodac Technical Pan film developed in Agfa Rodinal with my beautiful Rolleiflex TLR 2.8 Planar.”
