I shot this portrait for Spook Magazine when the charismatic Andrew W.K. was in Melbourne for the BDO tour.
I have always been a huge fan of AWK and my prior shoot with him for Meredith a few years ago is still one of my favorite shoots to date. So when Spook asked me to shoot him again I was enthusiastically obliging.
The publicist informed us we had about 45 minutes so with the genius of art director/ production designer Esther Justin we took inspiration from AWK's love of all things red/white/bloody and made a hanging sculpture that was reminiscent of blood splatter (think Dexter).
Make-up artist: Holly-Rose Butler
Set Designer: Esther Justin
Here are the final results and the spread as seen in the current edition of Spook Magazine.

I love packages in the mail! Today Voyeur magazine dropped on my doorstep. This magazine travels the globe entertaining passengers for at least 15 minutes of their many hour flight. This issue I photographed "Meals of Wheels". Celebrating the revolution of tasty food vans across Melbourne.
