Mucca Pazza at Mass Moca

[br] A music video I shot and directed (edited by John Dingfield) just premiered the other day:  Mucca Pazza performing Gary Kalar’s composition, All Out of Bubblegum, shot on location at the magical MASS MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art) in North Adams. Good lord, that was a fun shoot.

This is the second Mucca Pazza video I’ve had the great pleasure of working on; I shot, directed, and edited this one a few years back: [br]

Mucca Pazza portraits

I recently completed a personal project; a series of 30 individual portraits of the raucous, enchanting, Chicago “circus punk marching band,” Mucca Pazza. I shot the portraits in my studio on 4×5 Tri-X, using an old Deardorff 8×10 view camera with a reducing back:

Here’s one of the portraits:

And here’s the finished piece; a 20×30″ print with all portraits:
