In celebration of the release of Kevin Haskin’s book Bauhaus Undead: The Visual History and Legacy of Bauhaus, we are sharing a photo session recently unearthed by UK photographer Justin Thomas, who did a photoshoot with Haskins and singer Peter Murphy.
As Thomas told Indie Through The Looking Glass:
“I think this was a session for Japanese mag Music Life. I dragged Count Dracula reluctantly out into the grey daylight of mid February 1981.
I got him and his sidekick climbing walls, swinging on lampposts & jumping into building sites, before sending him back to his crypt.
A few months later I photographed him at The Lyceum in a frightening black woolen onesie that his mum probably knitted for him.”
His sidekick is Bauhaus drummer Kevin Haskins and I love these photos, they seem so care free.”
