Scars and Stripes featured portraits of actors, celebrities, and musicians—including Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Biggie, and Tupac—who ‘burnt bright’ and died before the age of 30. Scars and Stripes alludes to the fragility of life while reflecting on pop culture. I’m fascinated by love, loss and the immortalization of celebrities…while their lives are cut short, they never grow old, never lose relevance and retain the spirit of youth forever. It’s perfect for our consumer led culture, we get to put them on a pedestal and manipulate their ethos to fit with ours over and over again”
