For his latest fashion show, Patrik Ervell adorned all of his models shoes with rusty staples.  The look was fresh, the risk of having to get a tetanus shot?  Not so much.

“This photo was on my wall as a child and continues to inspire me to photograph musicians. The idea of being on the inside with your favorite music artists was one of my original motivations for picking up the camera. I can’t play guitar, but I can make photos.”
