Photographer Zach Phan and NAKID teamed up for this exclusive interview and editorial series titled, ‘Les Inclassables‘.

The series is inspired by the interrogation scenes on Law & Order. Of all the amazing never ending tv shows to model an interview/photo series around, that is definitely the top of the list. Zach seeks to understand his subject’s perspective in a series of questions, similar to those riveting SVU/Criminal Intent episodes, revealing insights about their experiences at school, others misconception of them or in general about people and why people become or are, depressed.
