Perou (Ralph John Perou) is a professional photographer. He has worked with such bands and artists as Coldplay, Damien Hirst, David Beckham, Jay-Z, Missy Elliott, the Spice Girls, Tracey Emin, Dita Von Teese and U2. He has been one of the premier photographers of Marilyn Manson since 1998, with his most predominant period (from a fan's perspective) was during The Golden Age of Grotesque, Lest We Forget, Eat Me, Drink Me and Heaven Upside Down eras. He is also a member of the Celebritarian Corporation. Perou has stated in his online diary that Manson presented him with a unique Celebritarian Ring, featuring the Cross of Lorraine, constructed from black onyx and platinum, the only other of which Marilyn himself has; this seems to confirm an official affiliation with the movement.
