Gabriel Jones: new Arcade Fire album cover04 June 2010
Gabriel Jones wrote in to tell us about his recent project shooting for Arcade Fire’s new album cover, entitled The Suburbs.
These images where taken during a road trip in various suburbs in Texas followed by a studio shoot in Montreal where the selected suburb images where then projected on a large projection screen. The car and band members where positioned in front of the various suburb landscapes. This series of images are exploring a north American suburb experience and the memory that one can have from their suburban youth. A silksceen effect was added in postproduction. Gabriel’s images where also used for a postcard which Arcade Fire used to send out to magazines informing them about their upcoming shows and news about the album release. The series was art directed by Vincent Morisset and designed by Caroline Robert. Arcade Fire’s album is coming out on august 3rd and 4th.
