GALLERY Behind the Scenes with Japanese Breakfast By Jes Skolnik · July 22, 2016

Michelle Zauner’s work, whether writing or music, is deeply personal and memorial. Zauner has a deft hand; she easily manages to tease out the elegant threads of joy and love in grief. Her work is mournful, but it is also celebratory. Her first solo album as Japanese Breakfast, Psychopomp, which she’s currently touring in support of, finds Zauner spinning lo-fi bedroom demos into sturdy, soaring dream-pop with glassine synths and Velcro hooks.

Photographer Chona Kasinger spent some time with Zauner before and at her recent show at The Crocodile in Seattle with Jay Som and Mitski. Our exclusive photo gallery is below.
