Misfit

26 October 2013

Photographer Dana Boulos is based in Los Angeles, CA with a soft spot for 90s' aesthetics, so it's no surprise that Trevor's untamed skater boy locks and intense gaze caught the budding photographer's eye while out and about in Sherman Oaks, CA. Both native to the area, they had an instant connection and the two came together to create these soft, high contrast, black and white portraits taken on location in the rockstar model's home.

Wearing his own grungy and vintage threads, Dana photographs Trevor as he playfully guides us through the cluttered chaos that is his studio and bedroom, among which you can spot a few old typewriters, several guitars, and a drum set indicating Trevor's passion for music and his status as the lead guitarist and singer for the LA-based rock band Jetwolfe that Trevor co-founded with his brother and Jetwolfe's drummer, Shaun. The band is known primarily for their complex, evolving musical style and catchy tunes, as well as their fun live performances which they sometimes hold in the empty pool near Trevor's house that he is shown dangling from in the penultimate photograph. Dana stays true to her 90's inspired aesthetic, with photos of Trevor seemingly straight out of the Lords of Dogtown outtakes.
