Sophisticated Pervert

He has exquisitely poor taste. It’s not hard to spot a thinly-veiled affinity for the raunchy and lewd in the very way he carries himself. He’ll agree, subversion has its kicks, but indulgence is his top-priority. He’s probably the bastard son of Dorian Gray and John Waters. I’ve been calling him a “sophisticated pervert” —...

Introducing A New Kind Of Still Life Photography

I carefully arrange things and then capture the scene on film. By using photography, I aim to create an exaggeration of reality and compounding of fears. I ask myself: When does a dream become a nightmare? The still life, as a type of representation, nods toward product and food photography, but I try to complicate the...

Meet The Artists Making Bodies Better Places

They make a living off the female form, evoking power and strength in exposing, highlighting the most vulnerable yet beautiful thing about us: our naked home. In doing so, both Liah Edwardes and Hilde Atalanta have created powerful communities of self-love and reconnection. Liah, aka @DriftedLineDesign, sees each body as originally beautiful. No duplicates, no...

The Performance Artist Exorcizing Her Demons On Stage

Celeste XXX is something that I have created as a rebellion towards conventional views of art, music, and the female form. XXX meaning sexually explicit or provocative content XXX meaning poison “punk” does not have to have a distorted fast pace guitar and angry vocals and pop does not have to be a mainstream thing....

Femmes Omitted: Nellie Bly: The Girl Puzzle

As women, we know the feeling of outrage when our entire existence is reduced to archetypal gender norms: a man telling you to get back to the kitchen, to smile as if you exist for his gratification only, what you can and can’t do with your own body. That outrage, and that fire, is the...

Not Yours

Not Yours is an interpretation of femininity and the unattainable ideals imposed upon women. Using the untraditional medium of 3D, my images aim to scrutinise the role of the internet and its desire to be aesthetically perfect. Through whimsical colour and texture, Bambi moulds glamorous dreamscapes and scenarios. 3D art: Bambi Kirschner

The Callousness Of A Casual Cocaine Habit

I’m sure many of us have lost count of the number of times we’ve had a few drinks and suddenly fancied the white stuff. It first occurs at the start of a house party when riding that early gin fuelled wave of social excitement and expectation. But as we always inevitably discover, it will only...

A Call For Diversity

All photos are self-portraits. I do the whole process by myself. The production, styling, makeup, set up of the space (usually my room), composition, and everything else. I get to learn from different fields and it lets me have more control over what I’m looking for. And then I ask my husband to press the...

Everything You Need To Know About Selling Dirty Knickers Online

When asked what her pussy smelt like, feminist writer Eve Ensler responded ‘my husband’s face’. There’s apparently over 2000 different lactobacilli molecular scent notes that compose the smell of pussy, and Eve Ensler’s husband’s face is just one of them. Although many have been rationed into thinking they should mask their fanny’s fragrance, there’s a...

Inside London’s Feminist Wrestling Club

  Watch out: female wrestling is not just a fiction popularised by Netflix. At EVE, the London club of “Punk, Feminist and Riot Grrrl of Pro-Wrestling” women are rocking and kicking asses.   This Sunday 4th of March, it was cold in The Resistance Gallery, the place where EVE’s members are training. “Don’t worry, you...
