Carhartt WIP is proud to announce a co-operation with the Berlin based photographer Marie Staggat and her enigmatic 313ONELOVE book – an extensive picture love letter to Detroit’s electronic music scene.
With more than 170 portraits, her book captures some of the most influential techno and house artists from Motor City, plus a string of profound stories about some selected artists as well as quotes by them on their hometown and its rich musical history. Her images are not just regular portraits of the artists in their living environment. Instead Staggat decided to shoot close-up pictures of each featured DJ, musician and producer, as their hands and ears represent the fundamental “tools” for all their creative output. Furthermore her publication is not only a heartfelt dedication to electronic music made in largest city in the U.S. state of Michigan. It is also a charity project that will support Detroit based children of all ages, who all do share a strong passion and love for music. Featured artists in “313ONELOVE” are Amp Fiddler, Carl Craig, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Dez Andrés, Juan Atkins, Mad Mike Banks, Mike Huckaby, Moodymann (Kenny Dixon Jr.), Anthony Shake Shakir and Robert Hood amongst others.
