"We're Only One Step Away from Our Dark Side"

    Prev Next

    Hanging out with a few photographer friends the other day, we had the awesome chance to bump into Rick Genest , aka "Zombie Boy". He has been modeling for Thierry Mugler and appeared in Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" video. His story is really fascinating, from the streets to the spotlights.... but he seemed to be a pretty lovely guy as well... very sweet and -if possible- "normal". So the "dark side" mention is only for the play...

    When my friend Tim asked me to take a photo of him and Rick, I couldn't help but notice there was a bit of mirror effect there, with their shaved heads and somehow even the energy. So I put them face to face and got one of my favorite portraits in a really long time.

    PS: See two more shots of Rick in the Comments section.
