Danny Clinch recently photographed gypsy punk rockers Gogol Bordello, the nine man band led by Eugene Hutz.
We asked Danny to comment on the challenge of photographing such a large group of differing personalities, to which he replied, “Typically you see the band photographed in vivid color with big gestures. Each member has such a unique personality and style that I didn’t feel I needed to rely on that technique while taking their picture–I was more interested in taking a classic photograph of them and allowing those personalities to mesh together naturally into one image.”
Of his portrait of their frontman, Danny said, “Eugene is very passionate and is a performer at heart. I wanted a shot of him in a more natural, quiet moment.”
