Colin Greenwood to Publish Book of Radiohead Photography and Essays


Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood has announced a photography book on the band. Out October 15, How to Disappear: A Portrait of Radiohead documents the band recording, performing, and just hanging out, between 2003 and 2016—what Greenwood calls “our middle years: all the joy and doubt and confidence and uncertainty we would oscillate between.” The books also features accompanying essays.

“For years now, I’ve been taking fugitive snaps of my band, Radiohead,” the bassist said in a press release. “I’ve tried to catch out my friends with my small black Yashica T4 Super. On stage and in the rehearsal studio, they are so lost in their own moment of performance that they don’t see me with the camera.” He added that he was “taken with photographs as evidence, forensic records of how we worked and changed a space, from barn to country house to empty arena.”

The book is designed by Duncan White and published by the Hachette UK division John Murray Press, with Mobius Books handling North American distribution.
