Justin Jay is a photographer based in New York City, who has captured iconic images of everyone from Jay-Z to Kelly Slater to LeBron James. Jay had the opportunity to spend time with the Strokes and document them as they travelled the world. The Strokes were just starting to gain mainstream appeal and Jay was granted an inside look at Julian Casablancas, Nick Valensi, Albert Hammond, Jr., Niolai Fraiture, and Fabrizio Moretti during this exciting time. With the band's latest album Comedown Machine releasing last March, Green Label asked Jay to sift through his archives to share these intimate images of the band and to tell some of the stories behind the photos.
