The Jason Shaltz 'Juggalos' photo series documents the ultra dedicated fans of the Insane Clown Posse. They paint their faces, follow them wherever they perform and even get tattoos proclaiming their devotion to the group.

The Jason Shaltz 'Juggalos' pictorial features images both in color and in black & white of Juggalos and Juggalette in their element. They actually remind me of the Ryggalos that follow me around that are dressed impeccably well.

Implications - For photographers, it's no longer enough to simply snap shots of rural landscapes or sprawling cities. Instead, the path to acclaim lies in associating one's work with a particular group or movement. Photography is often about observing human tendencies and the humanness of them; visual artists willing to embrace conscious, animate subjects are often the ones whose work is displayed at exhibits.
