Music Issue 2010: Atlanta photographers shoot Atlanta musicians 

Asher Roth, 2009 This photo was commissioned by Universal Records for usage as artwork for his debut. Asher expressed to me that he wanted the literal meaning of his album title, Asleep in the Bread Aisle, to be conveyed in the image, so I took him at his word. We found a bread shop on the West side of Atlanta, cleared a couple of rows of bread, and knocked out the shots. It's always great working with an artist who has total confidence in your vision as a photographer. It allows for a more spontaneous and organic shooting experience — which, in my opinion, tends to lend itself to more interesting or arresting imagery. This was definitely one of those experiences. — Hannibal Matthews
