Jukebox Appreciation

An ode to a dying musical mainstay: the jukebox, with David Black.

Jukeboxes are on the brink of extinction. The days of pulling nickels and picking your favorite jams at the local scout hall are gone, making way for the jukebox’s highly-digitized progeny. The romance of the jukebox is fading – but it’s not dead yet.


In this recurring feature we throw down $10 and ask our favorite creatives to photograph a jukebox and document their selections. This time around, David Black came with us to legendary Hollywood haunt, Jones on Santa Monica Boulevard. David is a Los Angeles-based photographer and director noted for his work with Daft Punk and Kendrick Lamar. His photographs have been published in The New Yorker, Rolling Stone and Interview Magazine.
