You know where I’m at right now? 

The brand new KNOTORYUS OFFICES baby! That’s right!

I’m proud. But I’m also unpacking shit, so I kinda don’t have time to elaborate on the following images.

I hope you don’t mind!

Das Pop. Reinhard Vanbergen’s jacket.

Huge shoot.

I love this guy. Such a great musician. Such a great look.

We shot him, SOULWAX/2MANYDJS, THE ODDWORD and THE BLACK BOX REVELATION for De Standaard Magazine.

We booked Amélie Lens for this shoot. She made the VOGUE US Top 10 Faces To Watch list (actually she was n°3).

She’s only 19, but has walked shows for a.o. Maison Martin Margiela and Jean Paul Gaultier (he has lovingly named her “ma petite Belge”).

I would like to name her : “hey kid, you’re a pro. and you’re amazing + ultra fun. We’ll be doing this again soon.” (I’m known for giving long ass nicknames)

David & Stephen are looking at me like I’m telling something remotely inneresting & funny although I’m pretty sure the only thing  going through my head at this point was : “pfwiiieettt-tuuuuuuuut-aaaahyoufuckingsecuredSoulwaxforasuperexclusiveshootanditsdoneandtheyrehappy-fwiiiiet.”

The Black Box Revelation. The singer (left) introduced himself with the rock ‘n’ roll staple : “Hi I’m Dries and I need to take a dump.”

Good dudes though and you should go watch them live. It’s just the two of them, but they wreck stuff.

Peeters & Kortekaas. The other two musketeers.

That’s right you two: you high-jack my camera, I’ll throw your ass on the www.

Love them to death though.

I had a nice long chat with Todd Selby who you probably know from his awesome site and super awesome book “The Selby Is In Your Place”.
