FOREWORD BY ROBERT SMITH (in his own handwriting!)
Fleeting moments… altered faces… unexpected spaces. By turns dreadfully justify, terribly honest, strangely melancholic – Robert Smith, 2014
Andy Vella has been observing Robert Smith and The Cure since 1981. He has designed the majority of the artwork for The Cure's record releases, either as one half of Parched Art or working solo, and has photographed the band in its multiple incarnations.
Obscure is a unique collection of rare and unseen photographs of The Cure in the studio and in performance. This visually stunning and beautifully designed volume has been compiled with the full cooperation and input of Robert Smith, who has also written the foreword.
