Film Photography, Inspiration

Inspiration #2 Neil Krug

 

I discovered the work of Neil Krug from the amazing blog 500 Photographers. Krug uses Polaroid film that has been expired for several years to create many of his images and is inspired by B movies from the 60s and 70s. He is also interested in a futuristic, sci-fi  aesthetic and likes to render 3D animation; an example of which is shown on the album cover for Gravity the Seducer. One of his most famous works is the Pulp Art Book, which contains a series of portraits of his supermodel wife and muse, Joni Harbeck.

He has also produced album art for My Chemical Romance, Ladytron, The Scissor Sisters and The Pierces.  I love the grainy, dreamy quality these photographs have and they make me realise how much I would like to start working with film.
