Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run


Bruce Springsteen – Born To Run, illustrated here with Clarence Clemons in the iconic pose for the cover of his “Born To Run” album in 1975.

Eric Meola was the photographer of the photo sessions and said this:

“Around 10 or 11am on June 20th, 1975, Bruce and Clarence walked into my studio on the fourth floor at 134 Fifth Avenue, carrying their instruments and a few changes of clothing.
I had the Rolling Stones album “December’s Children” playing.

The strobe lights were set up. It was just us – no stylist, no ‘hair and makeup’, no assistant.

There was a six to seven inch difference in their height, and Clarence wore a tall black fedora during much of the shoot. I kept several wooden boxes around the studio to adjust for height discrepancies, though for much of the shooting I did not use them.
As Clarence riffed on several sequences of notes, I began shooting.

We made quick changes of clothing and in the space of an hour and a half I shot almost 600 images. Then, we went outside, and I shot another few rolls underneath the fire escape.

The whole photo session was shot entirely on black and white film.”

Born to Run is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Bruce Springsteen, released on August 25, 1975, by Columbia Records.
As his effort to break into the mainstream, the album was a commercial success, peaking at number three on the Billboard 200 and eventually selling six million copies in the United States.
Two singles were released from the album: “Born to Run” and “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out”; the first helped Springsteen to reach mainstream popularity.
The tracks “Thunder Road”, “She’s the One”, and “Jungleland” became staples of album-oriented rock radio and Springsteen concert high points.

It has since been considered by critics to be one of the greatest albums of all time.
