The Savannah Arts Academy celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Junk 2 Funk Fashion Show in high style this past weekend. Using the them Let Them Eat Cake, students displayed a variety of fantastic creations using various recycled and repurposed materials. Trellis Payne and Meghan Scoggins are the key faculty behind the wildly successful event, but Junk 2 Funk is a huge effort that spans departments and appeals to students with a variety of interests.
I’ve been shooting photos at Junk 2 Funk for a number of years, and I am always impressed by the sheer warmth and joy of the event. It’s inspiring to see to many creative teenagers working together and supporting each other.
This is just a sampling of the photos I took at the Saturday matinee show. If you want to see even more, there is a huge album on my Savannah Unplugged Facebook page. Many thanks to photographer teacher Kinte Taylor for reaching out to me every year.
