The Many Faces Of Juggalo

Before I headed out to the Gathering of the Jugalos my editor at the Village Voice and I discussed ideas for different web galleries we could come up with to go a long with her feature story. One of the ideas we came up with was documenting the face make up that juggalos wear.  Many people rocked the standard black and white looks of the Insane Clown Posse’s Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.  Others rocked their own specific clown looks and a number of people changed up different looks every day. I was actually surprised that more people didn’t get “painted up” as they say, but the ones who did tended to do it up.

The Voice published the gallery yesterday and someone in the comments said “these pictures are boring. these people could be anywhere. a decent photojournalist would show some context.”  Um, what the fuck are you talking about? Of course they could be anywhere. These are just photos of the make up. He should perhaps check out some of the other photos I took on the Voice.  Anyway, I am not sure why I am mentioning it other than I wanted to tell that guy to fuck himself and it’s against Voice policy to get into it with the commenters on their site.

Okay, now on to the photos… Click here to see up close and personal photos of juggalo face paint at the Gathering of the Juggalos.
