WEEK OF PHOTOS: SOL-EXPOSURE
This past Friday we were lucky enough to hang out at The Roots “Rising Down” sessions. As a project for their new album, they invited the industry elite to Legacy Recording Studios for a private jam session where they were rehearsing the new album.
While I was there, I met Hilary Sol next to the buffet table. She was standing with another photographer who was shooting for Flaunt Magazine that night. I asked them both how they were approaching the shoot and when the Flaunt photographer gave a weak answer ‘portraits’, Hilary explained she was shooting entirely on film with Holgas, vintage 35mm’s and Polaroids.
Her story of how she got there was also quite unique, a random call from OkayPlayer which led to a voicemail from Rich, The Roots manager, which led to a week in NYC to shoot the album cover at the jam session.
update: she’s not shooting the album cover, there was a lot of second hand _____ smoke in there, sorry Hilary.
