Swans pictured at Supersonic by Hugh McCabe

We’d like to thank photographer Hugh McCabe for sending through this seductive and striking image of Swans taken at Supersonic last month. Hugh was specially invited by frontman Michael Gira to photograph the band using his unique double exposure technique, in which the film is exposed to different viewpoints for considerable time. This is a simplified explanation, so if you’re interested in hearing more about Hugh’s methods you can do so by reading his blog here.

Hugh, a musician as himself, has also written up an interesting piece on Swan’s latest offering ‘To Be Kind’ which can be read here
