The Blues Victim


I had a feeling, something was coming. I was watching “Devil at the crossroad” a documentary about Robert Johnson on Netflix. It starts explaining his early life, the loss of his wife of childbirth, his closure to hoodoo and the whole legend itself. Well, as the story goes Robert learned to master his skills playin’ in graveyards, at midnight.

So I thought to shoot a video of me paying tribute to Robert Johnson – Me & The Devil, in a graveyard in East London. It was a cold evening, late January. The whole park was empty and the atmosphere was warming me up.

He who seeks will find.

Along with my talented friend @_tesera, we decided to shoot some portraits in a studio at London Metropolitan University, near Aldgate East. The idea behind the mood board was to recreate a colorful scenario, based on formal menswear and vivid backgrounds. My first idea was to get inspiration from some old David Bowie studio shoot, especially from the Ziggy era. He was a master in bringing strong colors on camera and match them with original outfits.

For this photoshoot I’m wearing:

Teal outfit: Vivienne Westwood waistcoat jacket and trousers, Vera Black feather hair clip and chain bracelets bought at Salvation Army charity shop in Mayfair, London.

White outfit: River Island blazer, black cameo pin with AllSaints shirts.

Purple outfit: The Grateful Thread suit and Cheaney x Vivienne Westwood Seditionaries Punk boots
