Photographer Danny Clinch shares some of his favorite shots with RollingStone.com: “I was shooting some publicity for Pearl Jam and we were kicking around Seattle. I think it was a great moment because the band is often seen as such a serious bunch of guys. The fact is, they are five guys who are almost always having a great time. I just think this shows their camaraderie. I just felt it was different to show them all smiling and having a good time.”
