A huge part of the reason I dig vinyl as opposed to other formats, especially being that I’m a designer, is that each record you hold in your hand is a beautiful piece of artwork. I’m always highly interested to find out where these artworks were photographed and what has become of the places they shot at. So I’m going to do a ‘where are they now’ type series of posts with photoshop, if anything, to satisfy my own curiosity, and I thought you guys would be interested too! If any of you have requests, please ask, I think this will be a fun project! •
Here is the first that came to mind. The Doors ‘Morrison Hotel’. The building they shot at (1246 South Hope St, LA) is still there, but sitting vacant, having previously been used as low income housing. Apparently redevelopment is starting, and I hope they do it justice!
