If you are a Strokes fan, do yourself a favour and check out colinelane.com, Coline Lane’s photography website, where you can find a couple of sections dedicated to the band:
- The Strokes 2001-2006
- So Buckingham Palace
A collection of snaps that captured some posing and some spontaneous pictures of five young musicians whom did not yet know that their first album, Is this It, would have been voted, 10 years after its release, as the second best in the Rolling Stone 100 Best Albums of the 2000s (and first in my personal ranking).
The albums show an always composed and elegant Nikolai, smiling Fab and Nick, a hairy Albert and a mostly injured Julian with the 2000s’ New York City on the background, or the band and the fans during the UK tour in Reading, Leeds and Glasgow.
You can also spot a gorgeous (and at the time still groupie) Amanda de Cadenet, the band’s manager Ryan Gentles, Meg&Jack White and even Beck.
