Mike Piscitelli photographs a wild spread for the latest issue of Monster Children. The magazine recently started publishing in the United States and features stories and photography on skate, surf, culture, art, and music. Piscitelli collaborated with the magazine’s staff on the elaborate editorial shot in downtown Los Angeles.
Piscitelli booked the shoot a mere five days before the magazine went to print. He came up with the idea for what he calls “dog piles,” as they would “look really cool with the magazine’s landscape format.” The magazine loved the idea and within two days they had cast the models, found a studio, and shot the spread. Male and female models dressed in minimal clothes pile on top of each other, laughing and having a good time.
