Boned





Another Man magazine invited Nick Knight to photograph a men’s underwear story for Issue 5 in collaboration with menswear stylist Alister Mackie. The shoot took inspiration from the classic black and white studio photography of Horst P. Horst and Robert Mapplethorpe, but its modern twist was to reinterpret this disciplined vision in colour imagery. A modern response to memorable representations of the male form. -from the project website

Welt





Images by Ariana Page Russell.

My skin is very sensitive and I blush easily. I have dermatographia, a condition in which one’s immune system releases excessive amounts of histamine, causing capillaries to dilate and welts to appear (lasting about thirty minutes) when the hypersensitive skin’s surface is lightly scratched. This allows me to painlessly draw on my skin with just enough time to photograph the results. Even though I can direct this ephemeral response by drawing on it, the reaction is involuntary, much like the uncontrollable nature of a blush. --- from the artist's website
