The black band T-shirt is the most identifiable part of the metal genre subculture. Despite the diverse background (gender, race, religion, profession, etc.) of metalheads, the T-shirt is the biggest and most visible commonality. The band T-shirt is often the topic of conversion amongst metalheads before a gig. This project aims to bring the different faces of metalheads in their favourite T-shirt in front of the camera.


It is a tribute and a celebration of the black band T-shirt. Something that we all share despite how diverse we all are.
