The Kids Are Alright

By michael lavine in

Every now and then I get handed a project that is so cool that it sounds too good to be true. When the band Violent Soho asked my to photograph a group of kids dressed in post-apocalyptic attire wearing a crown of thorns and yielding home made weapons I couldn’t believe it. Of course I immediately cast my daughter and her friends for the project and proceeded to put together the costumes and props. We shot the job at Fast Ashley’s in Brooklyn, the first half of the day dedicated to the band photos (which I will eventually get around to posting) and the second half of the day to shooting the kids. It was a memorable day, reminiscent of my days of shooting bands in the studio, with the added energy of all the kids running around in crazy outfits, having the time of their lives.
