Inspired by some of his favourite blacklight 70’s posters and a whole host of other influences, Matt Barnes took the time to bring Raunch-O: a post-modern Pennywise of the Violator variety into our world. And we will never be the same again.
In collaboration with VFX samurai Louise Mackintosh, Matt used the Phase One camera and IQ180 digital back to bring Raunch-O to life. Matt has created images that are “colourful and creepy in equal measure.”
We had a chance to ask Matt a few questions about Raunch-O, and Matt’s process in bringing his nightmarish vision to life.
What was the inspiration behind Raunch-O?
What gear really made these shots sing?
Has there been any controversy thus far?
No real controversy … lol But I have a baby on the way and people keep making jokes about the print going in the baby’s room…
How have your clients responded?
This is a teensy bit edgy. So… you’ve been warned.
