Baker’s Dozen Acrylic Photo Prints

The universe is a donut. Tomorrow’s flavor is Kansas / Metallica. And this is still Lawn Boy. These are a few of the things we learned over the course of The Baker’s Dozen. Emphasis on few, since there were so many great moments over the run. For those lucky enough to attend all 13 (or any) of the Baker’s Dozen shows, Stephen Olker has created a mural, capturing one image from each night of the run.

Select photos from Baker’s are combined with the mural from the 7th Ave. entrance to MSG,  as well as the banner that now hangs inside MSG to memorialize this epic run. Can you guess which night was Velvet?

This photo mural is offered on acrylic and Kodak Endura Metallic paper (each 20″ x 30″). The run will be limited and each piece will be numbered and hand signed.

The total price for the acrylic will be $275 plus shipping ($15-25, depending on location).  The total price for the Kodak Endura Metallic paper will be $130. Shipping will be free.

Visit Stephen’s website to place a deposit for preorder, which is $125 for the acrylic, or $50 for the paper print. When the pre-order period is over, I will send an email with an estimated shipping date, and make a link available to complete your purchase. Each acrylic will include some hanger wire and a hanger. Expect the acrylic to ship between 10/15 and 11/01 and the paper to ship 11/01 – 11/15.

Preorder and placing a deposit ends 10/05 Midnight CST!

Attention NYC-area fans! Phish fans needed for photo shoot

Cory Schwartz, a Phish fan and photographer is looking for Phish fans in the greater NYC area to take part in a documentary project that he is undertaking through the first half of 2012. What he is seeking to do is to photograph fans in their natural environment, whether it be work or home, capturing what aspects of the band carry on outside of the show. Below, Cory shares his project with fans.

I am currently a student at the International Center of Photography in New York City where I am completing a one-year photojournalism and documentary program. For this program we conclude the year with a long term final project. My final project is about fans and the culture of what makes someone a fan, how they promote and share their love and enthusiasm for something, and of course the special items and memorabilia they collect along the way. There are many things that people are strong fans of, whether it be music, sports, science fiction, Disney, as well as a wide variety of other things that are out there. When I speak of the music fan, this one holds dear to my heart and is why I am calling on you. Music has been a passion for most of my life and has taken me on many journeys throughout. Once such journey is one a lot of us can relate to. It is the Phish journey. It is something that took hold of me back in 97′ and since then and about 75 shows later it is something that is still strong in my life and has had a profound impact on me. This is what I want to tap into, I want to photograph the “Phan”.

The project idea is about the Phan and how they choose to embrace this love for the band. We all have the posters on the wall and the t-shirts from tour after tour, but maybe you are someone who has a whole lot of stuff. Maybe its the room full of posters or the car plastered with bumper stickers. This is not something that is strictly limited to ones house though, this is something that can spill out into everyday life, in the environment that one creates for themselves, maybe this passion spills into the work place and the desk is adorned with trinkets. I want to photograph the Phan in his environment and show how this is a way of living, not something that stops at the last note played at the convert venue.

If you think this is something that you would be interested in investing some time in and allowing me to photograph you I ask that you please email me at coryhschwartz at gmail.com for additional information and we can discuss the project more in depth. My vision is to bring this passion to life in photographs. Thanks for your time and I do look forward to working with some of you.

This project is supported by PhanArt and fans in the greater NYC area are encouraged to get in touch with Cory, helping him to create a visual record of who we are when we aren’t at a Phish show.

You can visit Cory’s website and see some of his pictures of Phish on Flickr.

Update from Cory 1/30 6:50 pm

“I just wanted to say a quick thanks to Pete for his support on this project.   In the short time the message has been out there, the response has already been great, so thank you to all that have begun to reply!  I have received a large amount of emails and I’m beginning to go through them now, please know that I will do my best to get back to everyone and please keep sending them if you wish to be a part of this project.”
