Ryan Adams - Lucky Now single cover. Photo by Vivienne Gucwa (me!)
Blizzard in the East Village, New York City.
I have some incredible news to share. I was contacted by Ryan Adam’s independent music label a couple of months ago regarding commercial usage of one of my photos from this past winter for the cover of Ryan Adam’s latest single called “Lucky Now” (shown here in this post). I happily agreed!
The single is off Ryan Adam’s upcoming album called “Ashes & Fire”. You can view the cover to the single with my photo on it as well as listen to the single on Ryan Adam’s official Facebook page here:
It’s impossible to articulate how over the moon I am about this! I am extremely grateful to Ryan Adams for using my photo for this particular single.
The photo is special to me because it was taken during the peak of a very rough blizzard last winter which I ventured out in specifically with the intent of capturing my neighborhood wrapped in the embrace of a beautiful storm. The blizzard produced wind gusts of 55+ mph and ended up blanketing New York City in 20 inches of snow. It was taken in the East Village on one of my favorite streets in the winter. I love winter storms down here on the Lower East Side. It’s nearly impossible to keep me inside when the world is transformed into a wild snow-globe. There is nothing quite like New York City covered in freshly fallen snow.
I have created an album over at my Google Plus profile which shows the original photo along with the album cover (shown in this post):
