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...

India’s Gaze On Women: Priyanka Shah

It’s hard to be a woman in India. From birth many suffer the consequence of gender hierarchy, where baby boys take the top spot in many families as they are considered both good luck and a blessing.

Heather Glazzard Is Reclaiming Exposed Female Bodies

The Performance Artist Exorcizing Her Demons On Stage

SACROSANCT

I have always found solace in intimate moments alone or with a girlfriend in our rooms, it’s a strong part of what makes up me, and I wanted to display this closeness through my images. Most of my time as a teenager has been spent in scenes like this one. I wanted to portray something...

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...

Homesick

Whilst moving cardboard boxes out of my childhood bedroom, ready to move out and begin my life as an adult, I gained an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia and sadness for my past. I decided to collect items from my childhood that reminded me of all the things I used to love when I was a...
