Shoot: Blackboard Jungle

When you were at school were you the naughty one? Were you part of the group that would play pranks, crack jokes and generally lark about? Our latest shoot by Ben Breading explores these themes while paying homage to the iconic motion picture, Blackboard Jungle. Often cited as a trailblazer for the rock & roll movement, this classic 1955 film about delinquent inner-city schools and teachers has links to the teddy boys and riotous behaviour. Our shoot explores this while embracing a serious 50s aesthetic.
