Rocking out in Oklahoma

What kinds of carnival food are the Gypsy Pistoleros addicted to?

SUBMITTED BY: Ilya Mirman    LOCATION: Pryor, Oklahoma (2011)

Perhaps one of the country’s most prolific photographers of wax museum scenes (Jessica Simpson‘s patriotism, George Clooney‘s wedding, Tiger Woods‘ shenanigans, etc.), Ilya ironically stumbled across humans who pose like wax figures.

The body language and facial expressions of the Gypsy Pistoleros almost seem too perfect, like it was staged for the final frame of a VH1 “Behind The Music” documentary.

Other rock and metal bands stalked by Mirman’s lens at the Rocklahoma music festival include Motley Crue, Poison, Whitesnake, Papa Roach, the Sick Puppies, Saving Abel, Drowning Pool and Black Label Society.

(Ilya Mirman, who recently met Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx on his flight from Tulsa to Dallas, is the co-founder of Tacky Tourist Photos).
