Eccentric Photos Capturing the Many Faces of Nina Hagen in the 1980s

During the height of her glorious punk/post-punk weirdness, Nina Hagen visited the New York City studio of Gilles Larrain, who we discovered on Behance, for a series of improvised photo shoots. With newborn daughter Cosma Shiva in tow, the German singer and actress revealed her many faces — mannered, flamboyant poses and ensembles that prove why she’s a beloved and eccentric style icon. See the “mother of punk” take over Larrain’s SoHo studio in our gallery.
