What we advertise when we advertise music.

I am happy to see that Harvey has her own photographer that has been her collaborator throughout her career.

Also, the interface on the web page for seeing the photographer's commentary was very well done.

This makes me wonder how many rock stars don't have their own visual artists dedicated to managing their image on videos and album covers and posters and magazines.

"this video is not available in your country due to copyright restrictions."
yes, fuck me.

I like the photos even though they are very 90s, a style not yet old enough to be retro-cool.
