When I was four years old, I looked at Ethan Russell's photos of the Beatles, and I thought, "How do you get that job?"

Eighteen years ago this month, I photographed the sessions for the Avett Brothers' Mignonette album. I watched the album come to life, song by song. Sitting with the band as they recorded the backing track to "Salvation Song" in one take, I knew that I witnessing something special. Thinking about how many people that album has reached is still a wonder to me.

In 2004, Sidney Poitier came to UNC-Greensboro to speak at their Bryan Series. In those days, once the program started, ushers would leave the lobby, and would not ask for tickets. So I quietly walked in to the show, hid in the corners, listened to the talk, and took lots of photos. It was everything that you could imagine it would be.

Hello everyone. This is Daniel Coston. Longtime Left Banke fan, photographer, writer, and co-producer of the new reissue of Strangers On A Train. If it seems like this morning's announcement was a surprise, well, it was. Much like the last two years, things did not according to plan. But here we are, nonetheless.
