Here’s an interesting thing to do for fans of Metallica and photography. Check it out.
Photography duo HERRING & HERRING, a.k.a Dimitri Scheblanov, a 2005 graduate of The Cooper Union’s School of Art, and Jesper Carlsen, will be in conversation with Metallica’s Lars Ulrich to discuss their collaborative work together, the process of creating art, and more. Since their first shoot with Lars in 2014, HERRING & HERRING have photographed Metallica on multiple occasions, most notably for their 2016 platinum selling album Hardwired… To Self Destruct, providing photography and creative direction for the album cover art, as well as directing music videos, shooting band portraits and capturing their live shows.
The event is free and open to the public. General public should reserve a space here. Please note seating is on a first come basis; an RSVP does not guarantee admission as we generally overbook to ensure a full house.
Dimitri Scheblanov and Jesper Carlsen co-founded HERRING & HERRING in 2008. The duo’s photographic approach is based upon conceptual and aesthetic exploration; continuously pushing the boundaries of storytelling through an ever-expanding visual vernacular, creating arresting images which bring personality, humor, and sarcasm to the world of fashion and celebrity photography. As part of their partnership, they publish and photograph a self-titled image-only magazine built around unique creative collaborations with their celebrity subjects. The publication is as much akin to a highly-curated art exhibition as it is to a lifestyle magazine and can be found on newsstands worldwide. In 2017, HERRING & HERRING were named Hasselblad Global Ambassadors.
Lars Ulrich is the drummer and co-founder of Metallica, one of the most influential and commercially successful rock bands in history. Having sold 110 million albums worldwide while playing to millions of fans on literally all seven continents, Metallica have scored several multi-platinum albums, including 1991’s Metallica (commonly referred to as The Black Album), with sales of nearly 17 million copies in the United States alone, making it the best-selling album in the history of Soundscan. Metallica has also garnered numerous awards and accolades, including nine Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, and multiple MTV Video Music Awards, and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in 2009.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’m surely interested in this event, I am not too sure that I will be participating in it since it follows this years NY Comic Con and several other events are popping up around this sporadically too. I do love that these things happen in my city and suggest that those who are interested get on point ASAP before the space runs out. What do you folks think about this one? Chime in down below in the comments section.
