Urban Soul album art

I had the great honor of working with Andrew Kuhar of The Commonwealth on the album art for their second LP, Urban Soul, in August 2013. He and the band had a very specific idea of the image and mood they wanted to create with the artwork, and we collaborated on ideas to further refine that. With the permission of the RTA of Cleveland, we staged the couple embracing (friends and models Alex Koval and Lydia Munnell) on the platform at the Tower City subway station. For the back cover photograph, Andrew wanted a textured space in the city to contrast with the clean sharpness of the cover, and we found the perfect spot downtown to use. The inside photo is a candid moment captured of the band in another space at Tower City station.
