Chicago's 2012 Zinefest

You've probably seen the mobile photo booth Glitterguts around town at your favorite Chicago hot-spot, celebrating clowns, glitter, zombies, freaks, geeks, weirdos, mutants, hoopers, and hippies (to name a few) by photographing them at the peak of partying. Advertising that they're "down to shoot almost any event," the photographers for Glitterguts have done photobooths at raves, festivals, gallery shows, fetish parties, carnivals, schools and charity events.


Glitterguts co-founders Eric Strom and Sarah Joyce started photographing the "beautiful weirdos" of Chicago in 2007. With the help of Stefan Klapko, Meagan Fredette and Caroline Dixey, Strom has become a staple in the Windy City's clubs and themed parties.


Check out the slideshow above to see the best of Glitterguts' work from February and March 2012.
