Musical Influences: The Songs Behind Pamela Pecchio’s
On Longing, Distance and Heavy Metal

In her project "On Longing, Distance and Heavy Metal," photographer Pamela Pecchio channels attributes of both metal music and her personal struggles and states of mind into landscape photographs. The titles of the photographs in her series are taken from the titles of various heavy metal songs. Below, you’ll find a compilation of Pecchio’s musical influences for "On Longing, Distance and Heavy Metal," you can view several of the photographs that correspond to these songs on Pecchio’s website or on One, One Thousand.

(We also wanted to add that when we asked for this list of songs, Pamela Pecchio not only delivered it to us quickly, but she did it while she was in labor! That’s about as heavy metal as you can get. We hope visitors enjoy this playlist, and congratulations to Pamela on a beautiful baby girl!)

"The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, all in one." John Ruskin
