Joseph Cultice unloads high-quality photos onto Tumblr

March of the Pigs"Joseph who?" you might ask. But then you click through to PopIsPersonal.tumblr.com and suddenly it's 1995, and you go "Oh, that guy". Joseph was on scene during the filming of the March of the Pigs video (actually, both videos), is responsible for the 'trent-gloves' bootleg poster, and if you ever owned Demos & Remixes, several of the photos will be familiar to you. Joseph was on set for the Burn video as well, cue photos of Danny Lohner in drag and the live band as bloody monsters. According to Wikipedia, "Cultice's first big break came with Nine Inch Nails."

Joseph also apparently shot the cover for Closer to God (which got uploaded at 1280x1280, nice). The tumblr is full of mid-90s photos you've seen hundreds of times, as well as alternate shots you've probably never seen - with lots of Marilyn Manson, Type O Negative, Bjork, Moby, Chemical Brothers, Beck, The Smashing Pumpkins, Tricky... to name a few.

While the focus of that tumblr appears to be Coltice's 90s-era work, the photographer/director hasn't slowed down since - but these seem to be his favorite picks. Kudos to Harry Seaward at ETS for pointing these out.

Bloody hell
