Jarvis Cocker, Pulp photographed by Kevin Westenberg for NME Magazine in Paris in July 1996.
Kevin Westenberg recalls, "I already had a history with Pulp, having shot the covers for ‘INTRO’, released in October 1993, and the cover for ‘HIS –n- HERS’ released in April 1994 which were both commissioned via Savage & Best.
The perfect assignment. I had little idea what our direction would be as there were no lights or assistants, just the Eurostar train ticket, camera, film, and backstage lights. Make it up as you go along! This particular shot was one of my favorites for years after. It was the direction I wish the work could always be. Commercial concerns however dictated otherwise. The NME even created this image as a poster insert later. This shot of Jarvis was also featured in my London exhibition, ‘Idyll Worship’ in 2006. A very lucky moment, caught in the blink of an eye.
Only one or maybe two frames were taken of Jarvis as we walked back to the OLYMPIA Theatre, where Pulp was to play that night. I asked Jarvis to look up to get more light on his face. I had no idea the exposure would even work as it was a guess, so when I saw this on the contact sheet, it was a happy moment. The angle was such that it was also easy to tell who it is. The arms on hips are also perfectly placed".

A great print deserves a great frame. At Rockarchive we would be delighted to advise you on how best to select the right frame for your print. Please just let us know when you place your order or contact us once you have received your print and we will discuss the various options with you.
If you live in London we can arrange to get your print framed for you. Once the print is framed you can either collect it from our London Rockarchive Studio, in Kentish Town or we can arrange for it to be delivered to your London address (at an extra charge).
If you live elsewhere in the UK, we can arrange to get smaller sized prints framed and shipped to you. However due to postage regulations acrylic (eg perspex) rather than glass needs to be used in the frame.
