Academy for Men issue 4 is out today featuring a shoot / feature we did last year on a cold wintery arvo. I drove the gang in the '74 XB Fairmont out to Oak Park in outer suburbs of Melbourne, where rumour had it, hiding down the back streets amongst the cream brick palaces was an old empty Milkbar, said Milkbar was in fact the stomping ground of my partner in the 80s after school and on weekends. Picture a bunch of suburban scallywags hanging their skinny knobbly legs over the edge of the bluestone wall, mixed lollies and Streets Ice Creams in hand, acting up - the perfect location.
Rennie Ellis was our inspiration for the shoot, particularly his study of 'The GangWindsor 1976'. I supplied the car, Esky, acid wash skinny jeans and vintage Advance Australia knitted jumper. Rhys supplied the iconic Australian footwear - the moccasin. The look was to be an 80s bogan scallywag.
Also below are a few behind the scenes b/w shots taken by Monique on her old Olympus 35mm and some Polaroids thrown in for an extra 20 cents.
Thanks to Rhys Ripper from Academy for Men and Trevor King for shooting the spread.
