Marie Tomanova for Lampoon
Title: cumming, not coming
We met at Lida’s apartment in Chinatown and spent the day playing with outfits, taking pictures, smoking, drinking beer, listening and talking about music. I wanted to photograph the badass musicians of punk band cumgirl8. The shoot is about Veronika, Lida, Chase and Avishag being who they are; their music is the inspiration. They are edgy, powerful, playful, luring you in with sexy nonchalance and raw closeness. It’s about womanhood, comradery, and soulmates through music. We kept it real. Honest. We peeked into their universe
