Spent Saints is proud to announce that our esteemed cover and author photographer, Moose Susan Azim, has earned a place at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, a prestigious show in England.

About her photos, Moose explains, "My work is divided between commercial jobs and personal projects. Themes of interest are fragility of memory and emotion / time and place / joy / and the juxtaposition between nature and man made. She aims to evoke a memory or feeling that takes you on your own journey.

Based on Brian Jabas Smith’s best-selling collection of lyrical short stories, Spent Saints (IMDb) is twelve linked short films which follow the life of Julian Grayling, an abused and bullied adolescent who escapes torment by training hard be a champion teen bicycle racer, and, later, frontman of rock n’ roll darlings Spent Saints, only to see his dreams crushed after refusing to sell out to an infamous producer. Plunging to the depths of poverty, alcohol and crystal meth addiction, Julian finds himself in a Phoenix, Arizona barrio where he falls in love with a nude dancer, Serena. Moving to Detroit to reinvent himself as a journalist, his body gives out, and he loses his job, girlfriend and house. It is only when he faces down his underlying demons of depression that Julian escapes, with body and spirit intact.

Shot in three states by ten up-and-coming directors, Spent Saints features Michael Villar (Skin) and Justin Shilton (Little Miss Sunshine), alongside Ian Michaels and Shira Weitz, with Miss Maxim 2018 Runner-Up Carla Tempesta, underground rock legend Jonathan Paley and daughter Violet Paley, and a guest appearance by the storied Miss Pamela Des Barres. Featuring music by Gilby Clarke, Cait Brennen, Frankie & The Studs, Super J Lounge, Beat Angels, Billy Sedlmayr, Kenny Tudrick and more.
