Pro-Pain “The Truth Hurts”

Pro-Pain “The Truth Hurts”

CD cover for Pro-Pain, a Hard Core band in New York. The music is at first hearing tough and disturbing, but if you listen closely turns out to be quite beautiful.

The same is true for the front cover: It was shot in a morgue. The woman died in her sleep, her body was opened to determine the cause of her death. No retouching has been done. The booklet photography was found in the police collection of the Municipal Archives in New York.
