The Fisheye Snaps New Album Cover from Colin Edwin of Porcupine Tree

We were delighted when Porcupine Tree bassist and Lomography fan Colin Edwin sent us the cover of his new album, taken using his Fisheye No. 2! Float on to see more ...

Colin Edwin’s album cover for TWINSCAPES, out now on Rare Noise Records

Colin Edwin has been bassist in the British band Porcupine Tree for over 20 years, racking up over 10 studio albums and a progressive rock following worldwide. Colin is now releasing a new album with Italian musician Lorenzo Feliciati and the photo for the cover was taken by no other than our lovely Fisheye No.2 Camera!

The original photo

The shot was taken in Albuquerque, New Mexico using redscale film. Colin says on Lomography:

“I have a lot of fun with the cameras, especially on tour, where it’s the perfect hobby, I kill dead time walking around unfamiliar places and photographing things.”

We love how experimenting with analogue photography fits in to Colin’s life as a progressive musician!

Listen to some tracks from the album out now on Rare Noise here and find out more about Colin and his work here.

    I've been a really huge Porcupine Tree fan for many years, and now that I know their bass player is a Lomography fan, I have even more respect for them than ever...!! Lomo on, Colin! Oh, and if you want to use one of my shots for your next project - say, this one: http://goo.gl/XU2WJa - you're more than welcome to...! ;-)
