about Clayton Bubitt

Professional photographer, director, writer.

New York. New Orleans.

I mix art and fashion with technology. I did that fashion story about African skinheads. I’m the guy behind those Hysterical Literature videos. I get zef with Die Antwoord. My Long Portraits inspired a Superbowl commercial. I got dirty during Hurricane Katrina. I think subculture is culture. I think deeply about how the present creates the future.

My dad was a Canadian national running pot over the border from Mexico. My mom was a Cajun hippie runaway, go-go dancing on Bourbon Street. They met, married, and went on a lifelong road trip, conceiving me in the back of a VW van at a national park out west. I saw more by age ten than most people do their whole life, and this informs my work.
