Early, early morning in Diablo Canyon. A fire and a thrift shop guitar. One of a great series of photos by Ashkan Sahihi for the German magazine Die Zeit in 1995. This is how Ashkan and I met. I loved his work and later asked him to do the photography for Opium.
It was very strange to throw a guitar in the air for the Euphoria artwork and then burn a guitar for this photo. After knowing only to protecting guitars at all costs, it felt strange but also liberating to destroy a couple.
