flat people is bob guittard. bob guittard is my brother-in-law.
a few weeks ago i was contacted by a photo editor to shoot a band in the area. he said he liked my work, and thought i’d be good for this project. and then came the kicker; he said, “i’d like you to shoot a band called ‘flat people’.”
i laughed, thinking this was a joke put on by a family member. “yes,” i said. “flat people is my brother-in-law.”
“good,” he said. ” then you probably work well together, eh.”
in line with the name of the band, i came up with the concept for this shot. and thanks to my friend, master retoucher, and coincidentally flat people band member, warren barry, the photo-illustration would be my favorite of the shoot.
enjoy a track from their debut album…
