Mix eccentric composition, obscure angles and a lot of colour, and you find yourself looking at Tom Blesch’s breathtaking fashion photography. Never once creating a run-of-the-mill image, the Berlin creative practices what he preaches—describing raving (in his favourite cut-outs and mesh) as breaking free.
What does rave/club culture mean to you?
To break free.
When you think of a Retro Rave—what’s the soundtrack?
If we were to video you on a night out, what would we see?
You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub’ / Look, mami, I got the X if you into taking drugs.
Tell us about the best and worst night out you’ve ever been on.
Every night like Jersey Shore / Passed out on the floor / And now you wanna be a whore.
The worst nights happen when you are around people who judge.
What would (or does) your ultimate rave outfit look like?
Cut-outs with mesh.
If you could party with any possible person from the past, who would it be?
Nina Hagen—we’d dance all night to New York, New York.
