|Photo of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion taken by Joe Dilworth.
During an interview with thehundredinthehands.com Joe Dilworth picked this image as his favourite band portrait:
“THITH: Do you have a favorite band portrait you’ve taken?
Joe: A band portrait is very different to photographing one person. It’s about how the individuals combine to make a mission statement.
My favourite is one of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion that i took in my front room in london. The idea I took from a Jesse Hector sleeve from the 70s, but of course in translation it becomes something else. So we have jesse, a North London rocker in the 70′s, interpreting an American “rock n’ roll” pose from the 50′s, being re-interpreted by an American band in the 90′s. The classic transatlantic 20 year bounce.”
