Known best for his ability to brilliantly capture timeless photos of some of rocks biggest acts, from Death Cab For Cutie and Against Me! to Paramore and Blink-182, Russell recently tackled a different subject entirely for "Continental Obscura: From Birmingham To Bellingham." In the summer of 2013, he embarked on a life-changing, cross-country journey, moving from his native city of Birmingham, AL to the Pacific Northwest town of Bellingham, WA. Russell documented his trip, capturing the back roads, ghost towns, national parks and historical sites of America with stunning photos of the sights and people he met along the way. "Continental Obscura: From Birmingham To Bellingham" will also include an exclusive 7" vinyl record featuring rare, unreleased B-sides from Manchester Orchestra and Minus The Bear, two bands that Russell has shot extensively and that inspired his work over the course of creating the book. Book+7" includes digital download with a PDF of the book and audio files.
