WHY YOU SHOULD
After five years of photographing his subjects,
Dan Martensen released Wolves Like Us:
Portraits of the Angulo Brothers (Damiani),
whose collective story was explored in Crystal
Moselle’s prize-winning film The Wolfpack.
Martensen had just returned from a book
signing in Paris at the time of this interview.
Dan Martensen’s phone rang. It was his friend Crystal Moselle,
a filmmaker. She had been walking down First Avenue in
Manhattan and bumped into a group of boys, six brothers
dressed like the gangsters from Reservoir Dogs in matching black suits
and sunglasses. Is Martensen by chance in the city right now to shoot
them, she asked? Sure, he replied, he had actually just come from his
home in upstate New York to do a shoot in his studio—bring them by.
