Charles Peterson Pearl Jam Eddie Vedder Boston Bonus Print

Charles Peterson and 1xRUN decided to drop a bonus print for the Drop in the Park series and this one features Eddie Vedder at the recent concert in Fenway Park in Boston on September 2.
"Often, it's the seemingly simple that can resonate the most for me. For this 1xRUN bonus from Boston, I was envisioning a wide shot, a classic Who jump shot, solid action, Fenway! But this early (ten minutes in, first show) photograph of Eddie really struck me. Capturing the maturity of an artist, in an image that is both resonant and visually dynamic, in a live setting, is a tough thing to do. I’ll leave any interpretations beyond that to the viewer.

A bit about making the image. For one thing, it's not cropped and is at the long end of a Nikon 80-200mm. Pearl Jam have these enormous black scrims surrounding the stage, which makes it easy to get really clean backgrounds like this. Typically, the first night of any Pearl Jam show there’s a scrum of twenty plus photographers, most right down under Eddies’ nose, there to shoot the first three songs only. I usually avoid that, and head to the far side of the pit or elsewhere, until they’re finished. And that’s how one begins to get a shot like this. Or as I like to say to students: “Bend your knees!” (i.e. find that new perspective).

I also like the arc, the narrative trajectory made from the first image in the 1xRUN series of a young, wild Ed hanging from the scaffolds, to the middle age, dad Ed, still in awe of it all, playing at the legendary ballpark of his youth." - Charles Peterson
