Ghost Cult caught up with our old friend celebrity and music photographer Jeremy Saffer about his brand new coffee table book project, Daughters of Darkness, releasing on October 30th, 2020 from Rare Bird Books books. In part two of our interview series, we explored more of Jeremy’s mindset of shooting portraits of bands, and how he captured some of the most iconic shots of his career. He also discussed how much work went into the new book, how it came together, some intel on some of the models in the book – including some celebrity easter eggs in it, how he picked the bands for the Black Metal soundtrack to the book with Season of Mist, his huge collection of horror mannequins, Funko Pops, how he has pivoted during the pandemic with his new Patreon page, and much more! Interview with Keefy (www.instagram.com/ghostcultkeefy), and editing by Omar Cordy of OJC Photography (www.instagram.com/OJCPICS). Theme music by Salted Wounds (www.instagram.com/saltedwoundsnyc).
