WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER
It wasn't me.
Or maybe it was.
I'd been photographing the Dresden Dolls for years, and when she wanted to make a solo album, it seemed natural that I would shoot something for it. We had grandiose ideas for a sixteen page CD booklet filled with beautiful art but the record company wasn't interested. She'd get the same four panels everybody else got. Then one evening Amanda was talking to Neil Gaiman who said "Well, why not to a book instead? I'd be happy to write stories for it." -- Because that's how Neil thinks -- that obstacles are really just opportunities and it's always a good idea to make a new book and work with new people and have fun. And so we did.
I blogged about some of the fun stuff starting here.
The book should be out in June of 2009.
