If you support Under the Radar‘s Patreon page at the minimum contribution of at least $1.00 a month you get access to our Patreon-only feed featuring exclusive content only available to Patreon supporters. Today’s Patreon exclusive is a selection of previously unseen photos of Sufjan Stevens from a photo-shoot Under the Radar‘s co-publisher Wendy Lynch Redfern did with him in 2010. While some images from this shoot have been seen, these are specific frames that have never seen the light of day.

The shoot was done for our Best of 2010 Issue, which Stevens was on the cover of. Stevens’ The Age of Adz was our favorite album of that year, hence why he was on the cover. We photographed Stevens at The Standard hotel in Hollywood, Los Angeles, on the Sunset Strip. Originally we were planning on doing the shoot at a photo studio in Echo Park, but the location had to be changed only days before the shoot, which, in retrospect, may have made for a better shoot. Some of the images were captured using color infrared film, which gives some shots a strange hue.

Stevens recently teamed up with Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner (of The National), and James McAlister for a new collaborative album partly inspired by the planets, the fittingly titled Planetarium. This makes the 2010 frames of Stevens with the model of the solar system all the more timely.
