Springsteen's BORN TO RUN: Unseen Photo becomes a Classic Poster

One of the reasons that I photograph so proflically is to curate future Never Before Seen Photographic Exhibitions and Documentary Projects many years later. So whenever I hear of never before seen projects such as Springsteen's Born To Run Unseen Photos or Patti Smith: American Artist I get a rise.

Eric Meola, the photographer who shot the classic black & white cover of Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run, has taken one of the captivating photographs from his Born to Run: The Unseen Photos book and created a poster suitable for framing and available to all. From the same 1975 photo session that brought us the album cover, this alternate shot of Bruce and Clarence standing back-to-back feels familiar on one hand, yet its an entirely new glimpse of that iconic pose.

Offered exclusively by Backstreets Magazine, this striking image has been beautifully reproduced as a 20" x 30" poster on 100 lb. glossy stock. And best of all, the proceeds from all poster sales will go directly to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. So help a great cause and get a great poster, unseen no more. Order yours today.
