The hushed excitement. The flash of lights. The rush of screams as your favorite artist takes the stage. As a music photographer, I know this intensity from documenting bands and musicians around the globe. When you’re lining up early and pushing your way to the front rail, I’m right there with you, working to secure a good spot and capture it all.
Just like that first note can send chills running down your spine, so can the swirl of silk or the shimmer of leather. Fashion and music have always been deeply intertwined. When I’m spending hours editing and bringing my own style into each shot, this connection is inseparable.
I think my photography - and all the energy that comes with it - should have an existence outside of paper and frames. This is why I am turning my wide collection of portraits, photo passes, and setlists into something wearable and memorable, in the hopes that you can feel the intensity of those moments long after the show has ended.
The fashion line I am creating is called distortion unplugged, and will feature carefully chosen photographs and will be offered in limited quantities. All work will be signed by me. Every garment and accessory will have a piece of that passion, because I shoot with not only my eye, but my heart.
Distortion Unplugged is designed by Dana (distortion) Yavin, who is known as one of the most influential young music photographers of our time. Her work has been featured in a variety of media, including Rolling Stone, Billboard, relix, RollingStone.com, BrooklynVegan, SPIN, NME, NPR, Fender, the Waster, Yahoo.com, CBS local, Masterybridge.com, Rockin’on Magazine (Japan), BASSQuarterly (Germany), DRUM! Magazine, Microsoft Arts, VH1, Adult Swim, Consequence of Sound, CMJ.com, and many more.
