I was looking at these Mannequin Men photos that Hacker and I worked on and felt like sharing. It's still some of my favorite of my own work. You can see more of them on flickr.
I jacked the concept or rather was drew inspiration from a photo in the Mudhoney, Superfuzz/Bigmuff album.
They ended up using them on their Private Schools/Sewers 7" that came out on Criminal IQ records in summer 2007 and one ran in the Reader in the Sharp Darts column.

Last week I got a chance to take part in the only Christmas tradition that I really give a shit about, Snow Angels... Dan had originally asked me if I was interested in working on a promo a few months back at the Mannequin Men session where we recorded the sing-a-long choruses for Us and All Our Friends... I, of course, had a bunch of ideas already in mind. I was actually planning to solicit them to do a shoot this year anyway, so I thought it was really fucking cool when he asked. My original big idea was to have the guys playing at a party for a big group mall Santas, but that proved a bit too hard to orchestrate... maybe next year. Anyway, this is what we came up with and although this is not a final version, I already love it. Hope you enjoy it too. Also, thanks a lot to Emily Dunn, Sara Jean Stevens, Caitlin Kerr, Eddie P, and Sara's pup Piper for doing all of the real work. I think that sexy canine has got a big career in dog modeling.
