Blue Man Group Branding Images

Blue Man Group is best known for its widely popular theatrical shows and concerts that combine music, comedy and multimedia theatrics to produce a totally unique form of entertainment. The blissful party atmosphere created at the live events has become the trademark of a Blue Man Group experience. Creating their branding images was a wonderful collaboration with these amazing artists.
I have always been drawn to surreal imagery and when Blue Man group commissioned me to create all their branding images for their Las Vegas show, it felt like a project made in heaven. We set up a studio in their East Village rehearsal space and spent a full week photographing them in a whole array of scenarios, finally resulting in five unique compositions. An image of one of their signature events, paint drumming, as well as the image above, became their worldwide branding images.
