This is just a shot of inspiration to stall and keep you entertained while I Photoshop my own images.. consider it my admission of guilt to you fine followers..
Raunchy, controversial, exciting.. ..
This is a shoot for Tom Ford by Carine Roitfeld, enhanced lighting to accentuate the wrinkles NO Photoshop and uses senior citizens to sell sex instead of prepubescents. Does it offend you? Are you repulsed?.. don’t judge.. this will soon be you, and that day is definitely going to come no matter how much you moisturise, suck, tuck, trim, slice, add-on and take-off. Deal with it, embrace it, love it.. sex isn’t just for the young, desire knows no boundaries and your libido isn’t going to just switch off the moment you’re over 50..
“For me, I believe this shoot is expressing that beauty shouldn’t be perceived in such a small scope, that sexuality isn’t just for the young and pretty and again it is a comment on the fantasy constructed around fashion to sell. I love that the images show wrinkles and accentuate the textures of the models skin. It’s about reality.” ~ Carine Roitfeld
Had to share this.. please watch it.. inspiring, real, moving.. and about time!
Eclectic collection today.. the above model Rick Genest otherwise known as Zombie Boy is breaking the mould having modelled for Thierry Mugler, Nicola Formichetti and appeared in Lady Gaga’s video for Born this way.. I think it is AMAZING that someone would do that to themselves… it is really confronting. Personally looking at him makes me feel a little nervous and I don’t like feeling that way it kind of shows the hold mainstream conservativeness still has on me. Maybe it is from all the horror movies I watch, or the realism in the fantastic tattoo work but he freaks me out slightly.. I’m not sure I could handle waking up next to him in the morning without getting a fright every.single.time. God that must get tiring coming out of the toilet stall, coming around the corner, entering a room and either scaring people or getting a million double-takes a day. Can you imagine what kind of prejudice he has to deal with on a daily basis? He will be judged worse than Blacks, Asians, White’s, Gay’s, Lesbian’s, transgender you name it.. everywhere he goes he will be bothered incessantly, stared at, pointed at, talked about.. I’d love to interview him!! You know what I love it.. in a world that I feel is getting more and more conservative this gets people talking, gets people discussing and gets people learning, appreciating (hopefully) and maybe not so judgemental & prejudice..
I’m still working on my own photos ready for tomorrow..
Today was a busy day.. two shoots in one day. One for Chelsea Eve and the look-book for her first collection ‘To Love & Protect’ then I had to rush back to the office using the bosses driver. Next was taking the photographer and male model Alexander down a side alley and start shooting our new Limedrop stock.. heeled boots were not a good choice for footwear…
Was a great shoot, the clothes are beautiful, dreamy, lace, florals, silks.. playful and fun the images are going to look great
Awesome little spot in front of the Queen’s theatre… didn’t mean for his crotch to glow. Alexander was really good the model booker really sold him to me saying that he used to be a dancer and was inventive with his poses…
Alex brought the best shoes to the shoot… fell in love with them and they looked great with these pants.. Beetlejuice you say?? Awesome says I, wait till I get the pictures back he was wearing a simple cross necklace on a thin leather chain and a tight black V-neck shirt… as below
This pose did not make the cut……
