Band Portrait: Stomp Status

Stomp Status is a local band with a cool back-story – they live together in a house where they all teach, compose, practice, and party.   For potential use as album art on their new CD – eponymously named “5440” (their street address) – the goal of this shoot was to provide diverse portraits of the band at home.

Guanajuato (Mexico)

Somewhat analogous to our Lexington and Concord, Guanajuato was the the site of the first battle of the Mexican War of Independence.   Served by a unique subterranean road network,  Guanajuarto today is a vibrant commercial, academic, and artistic city.  It’s the home of one of the most important artistic and cultural events in Mexico and Latin America – the annual Festival Internacional Cervantino, which began 60  years ago with street performances of short plays by Cervantes.
