    Neil Krug: The Embry Twins

Guns, babes and haze – the trippy style of photographer Neil Krug

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Years ago I dragged a picture of Devendra Banhart into my “babes” folder, then had a change of heart and made it into my desktop background, If only I had known then that this photograph was by one of the most unique and in-demand photographers working today then I probably would have bought his book Pulp Art Vol.I immediately and drooled over the psychedelic, babe-adorned pages.

How he does it exactly, I don’t know, but Neil has the knack of turning people – usually extraordinarily beautiful models – into 1970s B-movie-esque nymphs using his clever camera trickery. Throw in some rays of sunshine, lots of wild flowers, sci-fi clifftops and a fair bit of nudity and vintage guns and you’ve got one of the most impressive photography portfolios around. No wonder he’s been commissioned by the likes of Warner Bros., Wichita and Polydor to coat their musicians in the visual vibes of yore.
