“KAPITAL’S FREE KOUNTRY” SHOT BY ERIC KVATEK

This post is also available in: Ita

New photos for Kapital’s Kountry line. Kountry garments are limited production, reworked and reimagined Kapital products. For this collection Kiro melded hippie flare’s, skater pads and Free Tibet messaging.

My challenge as the photographer was to find locations and cohorts to make Kiro’s vision make sense in photos. L.A. ended providing the perfect setting and an amazing mix of local talent. Local skaters were street cast at Venice Skate Park. Jumbo’s Clown Room pole dancing bar has been on my radar for almost ten years and finely we were able to shoot there featuring our friend and Jumbo’s veteran Emily.

Unlike previous shoots, there will not be an official Kapital book printed, however I will feature the photos as an editorial in my upcoming magazine project.
