A few weeks ago my friend Peter asked me to photograph a recent project of his. Designed in concert with his graduate students at RISD, the Disaster Go Bag is made for when the apocalypse strikes and it’s time to peace out. It’s made of a custom textile that filters air, or, you know, disease spores. It also generates power for small electrical devices and contains a bottle with a custom filter top to create potable water from any source, like swamps. The glow-in-the-dark ribbing is for when you need to keep the zombie watch going well past dark. You know, just in case.


I asked my friend Allison to pose and Lilia did the make-up. If you see me rocking a fresh pair of Jordan’s, you’ll know which shoot they came from.
