Frank & Tyrone Lebon Behind the Scenes of Harmony Korine’s The Beach Bum
The British photographer Tyrone Lebon (one of fashion’s most acclaimed and innovative new eyes) and his younger brother Frank (a remarkable camera talent himself) were invited by their longtime inspiration Harmony Korine to cover the wild shoot of The Beach Bum (now available on digital) and wander as they pleased on the set of the Florida Keys production starring Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Zac Efron, Isla Fisher and Jonah Hill. They documented their trip with a 20-minute making-of film (sign up for their mailing list for upcoming screenings) and a photo book, Inside the Bum, featuring on-set images with their thoughts, notes, and souvenirs – printed in limited edition by DoBeDo and sampled here with the brothers’ commentary.
