Patti Smith's album Easter and her opening track "Till Victory" epitomized all that was right, for some, and wrong, for others, with Rock N Roll. The song "Till Victory" glorified rebellious outsiders. It was a poetic battle cry that audiences loved but never got any real radio airtime.
This series draws on photos of three models, Drew, Zoi and Daphne. Drew is a model and a photographer for the Suicide Girls, a group that embraces the outcast lifestyle. For each of these images, I projected photos of punk rock symbols onto the models using a mini-beamer. In Drew's case, these blend with her elaborate tattoos. For all three, the results are a montage of strong young women proudly wearing their digitally painted symbols of otherness.
