Frank joins the Band for a candid collection of Polaroids
Today it seems as though few are surprised by the meteoric rise of Frank Ocean. I remember it was a Facebook post from Nic Nac that introduced me to the gem lying beneath Odd Future’s massive sphere of influence. A classic album, a poignant letter and a couple Grammys later and April 2013 Frank Ocean, quite frankly (pun intended), can do whatever the fuck he wants. For example, lending his likeness to the searingly relevant aesthetic of Scott Sternberg’s Band of Outsiders. Shot in a whimsical fashion by Sternberg himself outside the Los Angeles Times building, these Polaroid portraits place Frank on an illustrious list of creatives who have graced the pages of Band of Outsiders’ understated campaigns. From Jason Schwartzman to Kirsten Dunst, and now Frank, the Band reminds us that often, it’s not always about the clothes, but more so who’s wearing them.
