Brinson+Banks photograph singer-songwriter Perfume Genius for Huck magazine’s Outsider Issue

Brinson+Banks photographed singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas, a.k.a. Perfume Genius, for Huck‘s Outsider Issue. “Outcasts often seek shelter in the music of Perfume Genius,” writes the magazine. “But after finding stability in his own life, Mike Hadreas realized that sobriety doesn’t fix everything. It just shines a harsher light on the underlying problems.”

Kendrick and David shot the portraits at Hadreas’ Silver Lake home and at neighborhood fave the Astro Family Restaurant. “I don’t know if it was his mood or our mood, but we vibed right away,” they say. “He moves like water on camera, and once we put him in a spot, he would just flow and melt and move so beautifully, almost reading our minds before we even directed him.”

“This is one of my favorite shoots this year because it was just so nice to photograph someone so unguarded and beautiful—and his music is just so good, too!”
