DAMAGED / GOODS June, 27 2017
I had to come all the way from the the City of Light to Los Angeles, California to find Brooke Olimpieri, known for her sexy and playful 35mm photographic work and as FilthyMouthCreactive.
Amid the chaos created by DAMAGED / GOODS, after burning dozens of copies of issue 0 of Damaged / Goods Magazine, I look back and am amazed that every single time I was about to go crazy, lose my mind and give up on Damaged, I would get an email submission from Brooke.
09/08/16 Email subject: More! 💕 Story "Cherry"
11/07/16 Email subject: New submission 🔥 Story “Deep Throat”
01/16/17 Email subject: Submission 💘 Story “Sugar High”
03/01/17 Email subject Story “Holly Day Inn”
05/06/17 Email subject: Submission Story title "About A Girl"
...always with her trademark signature "If it's not Filthy, it's not good"
This past Thursday, I got an email from Brooke. 6/22/17 "Submission! 💕 💕 "Hi Aurelien! New submission for you! Let me know if you like it for Damaged! Here’s a Story title “Hot Child in the City”
Another dope title but three words kept going through my mind endlessly, repeating themselves like a broken record: you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool.
In a January 16 Interview with Damaged about her upcoming limited edition book, when asked how she had come up with the name FilthyMouthCreative, the Creator of Another Filthy Magazine responded:
"I have a dirty mouth, filthy if you will. In particular circumstances, mostly the bedroom.. My husband brought this to my attention. I wrote the name on a post it and stuck it to my refrigerator over 12 years ago "Filthy Mouth".. I always thought it would be a great name for a brand.. It stuck."
Brooke, YOU'RE SO COOL! I'm just trying to be cool, It's all because of you, some fanatic attitude 🍑
This new story was all shot on 35mm and expired film by Brooke Olimperi and styled by Natalie Chalmers, Tennessee gal in LA.
