The published photos in this diary function as a peephole to gain insight into the recording process in the studio.

You are not only gaining insight but are also being provided with an outlook on upcoming releases documented and presented in this diary many months in advance. This way you are placed in a mental state of the ones involved in the recording process, musicians, producer, engineer and label staff, in the middle of creating music.
