The documentary Flake & Flames was the result of a year long adventure spanning from California to key places in Europe. During this international trek Dirk Behlau and Jesper Bram documented the lifestyle and sub-cultures that comprise Kustom Kulture. From musicians, pinup models, fabricators, and artists ranging from tattooers to pinstripers Flake & Flames is an inclusive look at all avenues that lead to the heart of what defines such a collective culture.Photos Courtesy Of Flake & Flames
