Eli White's Profile
At 10 years old, I fell madly in love. An impassioned love affair ensued. As would be expected, my parents didn't understand and forbade the late night rendezvous'.
It was a reckless alliance, me and Punk Rock!
Late night window slips, allowed regular passage into the city. Captivated by the streets of New York. Engrossed by the colorful characters of the Lower East Side. Enchanted by the seeds of rebellion abrew within the dingy, smoke filled clubs. Drawn to the music and costumes that rose from the putrescence, born of what seemed to me, magic.
I began scrounging for tidbits, to create my own unique protective coating. Thrift stores, hand me downs, garbage bins... nothing was sacred in the search for the ultimate costume, my very own reflection of self, my personal armor…
