Reel Art Press have collaborated with Metallica & Ross Halfin on an epic celebration of one of the best-selling albums of all time featuring classic and previously unpublished photographs. It includes introductions by Ross, James, Lars, Kirk, Jason and Robert. Ross was with the band during the album sessions at One on One studios in North Hollywood and shot thousands of film rolls during the 300-date tour that followed between 1991 and 1993. He intimately documented the hectic performing schedule, backstage, rehearsals, interviews, band meetings and travel, alongside unique portrait shots of the band.
Ross came to the studio at different stages and every time we took a ton of pictures. And some of those pictures ended up being the black portrait shots that came with the album” – KIRK
