Over the past 15 years, photographer Autumn de Wilde and Beck Hansen’s friendship and collaboration have yielded a body of work every bit as playful, innovative, and lyrical as his music. This beautifully designed volume – featuring a circular fold-out poster jacket – collects the best of these amazing photographs, including intimate portraits as well as images documenting the recording of his seminal album Mutations, and gorgeous photo sessions informed by Surrealism, Dada, Op Art, and other artistic influences. The photos are supplemented by conversations with Beck and contributions from other creative collaborations that shed light – sometimes at strange angles – on Beck and his music.
