While surfing the internet this weekend I came across these beautiful STUDS and just had to share.
This series of shots featured in V Magazine and were taken by Nick Knight. Nodding to fashion’s ongoing preoccupation with pushing gender boundaries, ‘Studs’ was a series of nine unique photo studies.
Each explored the idea of a third gender, Simon Foxton and Bea Sweet recruit a range of subjects who refuse to comply with traditional notions of the sexes.
The portraits – each a study of unconventional beauty – are captured by Nick Knight in stills and fashion film.
This project is a celebration of femininity, even though it’s not what we understand to be female.
