Known best for his iconic photography of some of rock's biggest acts, Ryan Russell has released a new travel photography book titled "Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham" today via No Sleep Records. The limited edition book will also feature an exclusive 7" split record with unreleased and rare music from Manchester Orchestra and Minus The Bear. The book is available for purchase now from No Sleep Records and Amazon.com. For the last decade Russell has captured memorable shots of famous rock bands like Paramore, Death Cab For Cutie, Tegan and Sara, Taking Back Sunday, Against Me!, and comedian Patton Oswalt. He also had photos featured in publications like Rolling Stone, Esquire and New York Times all while amassing an impressive cult following of his work. For his latest project "Continental Obscura: From Birmingham to Bellingham" Russell turned his lens onto a different subject entirely. 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 on the 8-day journey, plus his first few weeks living in western Washington.
