The Locust

Knees_01 001

The body modification world (and IAM Community) lost one of it’s most memorable characters on 22nd March 2011 when Adam Aries- better known as Zidney Fiendish, passed away at the age of 29. His death caused a crushing blow to the people who’s lives he touched; as a piercer at Pino Bro’s tattooing, an integral member of the RITES OF PASSAGE suspension group, security at the Middle East club and freelance DJ/VJ, Adam had a tangible presence in multiple communities and subcultures, and we all felt a communal sense that a truly bright light had left us.

Atom Moore- a talented photographer (who documented two Scarwars events among other much more ambitious projects) and close friend of Zid’s spent the better part of a decade documenting their friendship; Atom found a muse in Zid who always provided more than expected when a camera was around.

The best images from their friendship and collaborations will be featured in a solo show starting July 7th  at NYC’s Sacred Gallery from 8-11pm. The gallery is located at 424 Broadway on the second floor, just up from Canal Street.

Even if you never had the pleasure of meeting Zid (and the stories I could tell you…) this solo show from Moore promises to be an emotional and highly stylized documentation of friends that became family through blood, sweat and tears.
