“Poison Hearts are the egocentric yearnings for the glory days of sleazy, dirty, balls to the wall Punk Rock and Fucking Roll.
Taking inspiration from the New York Dolls, tipping a hat to Social Distortion, whilst having a street fight with the Sex Pistols, Poison Hearts will take you to a party where you either won’t want to leave or you might just forget how you got there”
This isn’t the first time I’ve worked with Poison Hearts and although their line-up has changed slightly over the years, their attitude has not – Punk Rock at it’s finest.
I like to keep things simple when I’m photographing bands, especially when there’s a few of them – no gimmicks, no props and simple locations (musicians still ask me to photograph them on railway tracks with their guitar slung over their shoulder like it’s never been done before, ever…)
For this shoot I used a mix of film (Leica R6/50mm/Kodak Tri-X) and digital (Fuji X-Pro1/35mm)
