Prior to the Punk Shoot, my SAIC final project, I prepared several exercises for the models to participate in. I needed these select eight to become victims of a thrashing, boisterous, screaming riot grrrl punk show. I laid out each models outfit on my narrow hallway floor, leading to my room. Naturally, the models tried avoiding walking on the clothing. I shouted at the models to go back and stomp on every single article of clothing. This gives the models an inconsequential taste of what the night would be like. I needed to capture the raw essence of punk; Attitude, Chaos, Freedom, and Questioning Authority. I asked model, Tom Sevcik, to pick up my snare drum and throw it anywhere, as hard as he could. I turned the music louder and we proceed to create some hard photographs. I present them to you now...
I created a line of "zines" which is essentially a small magazine to display my SAIC final project. The physicality of these small photo books bring yet another layer to the "Stay Noided" project. I am selling these for $10 a-piece and have already sold three.
Model: Tom Sevcik, Alice Bowe.
