Mariana Yegros in Bombay Mermaid

So excited to post these shots of Mariana Yegros of La Yegros in Bombay Mermaid Trading Co. These photos were shot on the band’s first US tour in September around the streets of Williamsburg by Israeli photographer Ayala Gazit. The team had a blast running around Brooklyn, searching out graffiti and cool spots to capture Mariana’s amazing energy.

With 12 international tours under her belt, she is a force to be reckoned with (and she also went home with a Bombay Mermaid poncho to rock out with on tour). Special thanks to my dear friend and producer Allie Silver for linking us up and making this happen.

Holy men of India

Epic beauty.

“Canadian commercial photographer, director and publisher Joey L. has had a lifelong interest in endangered cultures and traditions and rare religious practices. He recently enriched his stunning “Holy Men” portrait series by travelling to the Indian city of Varanasi (one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world) for the third time and capturing divine portraits of religious ascetics who have long ago abandoned their “civilized” lives.”
