'Rebel Youth' for Wallflower Management

I shot this story for the third issue of modeling agency Wallflower Management's quarterly zine. Stylist Ariella Villa found photographs of rockabilly teens in Sweden from the 1960s who were wearing these oversized horseshoe medallions and Elvis Presley belt buckles. The style was so exaggerated and cool, and we adopted that as a jumping-off point for the shoot. She and jewelry designer Benjamin Hubert fabricated all kinds of awesome accessories for the models to wear. Hair and makeup artist Shane Monden used some vintage snapshots as inspiration to give each of our models a unique take on the rockabilly style. My many thanks to the models, to my crew Ariella, Shane and Benjamin, to Tammy and Brenda over at Wallflower Management, and to Yen Tan who designed the spread.
