Autumn de Wilde is unique among modern music photographers for the way she creates her intimate and arresting images---through friendships and close bonds with the musicians that she documents. DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE could not have been created by any other photographer. Friend to the band, Autumn has documented them for many years, incuding the extended period during which they repaired to a farmhouse in upstate NY to record their commercial breakthrough album Plans. DCFC collects approximately 200 of her best images of the band over the years, supplemented by conversations with the band and reproductions of some fun insider-y ephemera (TBC: perhaps letters, tour scribblings, etc.) Page count TBC, may go up a bit.
Autumn de Wilde has worked with Beck, Spoon, Wilco, Jenny Lewis, the Decemberists, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Girls, Conor Oberst, Norah Jones, and many others, and is documenting the life and work of the fashion designers Rodarte. Her books include Elliott Smith and The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights, both published by Chronicle Books. She lives in Los Angeles.
