NEW MINA CAPUTO PHOTO SHOOT CONVEYS ITS MESSAGE WITH SUBTLETY
Mina Caputo — who you may have once known as Keith Caputo — recently participated in a shoot with famed metal photographer Jeremy Saffer, and… yeah, as you can see from the above sample for the session, I’m totally kidding about the “subtlety” bit. This is about as subtle as Joey Jordison is tall.
That being said, I’m not giving Caputo and Saffer shit — on the contrary, I applaud them. Subtlety isn’t what the topic of homophobia in metal needs right now; it’s far too serious an issue. If photos like the above get more people talking, well, I’m all for it.
You can see the rest of the photos, plus a lengthy blog from Saffer regarding the experience of creating them, here. And if you haven’t already watched this video interview regarding what led Keith Caputo to become Mina Caputo, you need to do that, too — it’s great.
