Clairy Browne and the Bangin Rackettes Photo Story

  • On November 15th, 2012, Clairy Browne and the Bangin' Rackettes made their NYC debut, performing in the Studio at Webster Hall, located in New York City's East Village. Recently taking up assignment with CMJ, a music magazine that often deals with live concert coverage, I had stumbled up the band through a Heinken commercial on TV, had taken a liking to them, and after learning about their mini US tour, requested the show to document. Although my editor was looking for strictly live coverage, I decided to test my luck and see if I could swing in a few portraits of the band. Luck was in my favor that day, as I was able to get two different types of portraits; studio based individual portraits, as well as a group portrait, in addition to the live coverage. The portraits never saw publication as CMJ was more interested in live coverage, thus remaining unpublished until now.
