"This was around the time Bruce recorded Magic in 2007," Clinch says. "During the making of The Rising and Magic, I went down to Southern Tracks where [producer] Brendan O'Brien worked all the time. I went down to Atlanta and hung out while they were recording and captured some of the process and then did some portraits of Bruce and the band for publicity and packaging. Brendan had this really cool old Airstream camper out in the back parking lot. It was his chill zone where he could get away and have some down time out of the studio where nobody could bother him. It had a really great surface to it and I loved it. I wound up doing a portrait of everybody in the band there. This was the one I did of Bruce.
"I'll tell you something about this photo: If you put this photo and any of the other Bruce Springsteen photos I've taken, five or 10, and hand them to a woman, they'll pick this one every time as their favorite. I don't know why, but that's the truth."
