Boarders is Great! I stand there, in the magazine section, simply flipping through and reading all those mags I simply just can't buy! ... and I stand, in awe, page after page of exciting fashion photography, news and reports. I'm not "Just Looking!" I'm really Just lusting! Lusting after all these treasures I wish to own. And this photo-shoot was too good to put back on the shelf! I wanted it, and I wanted to own it!
I love that it is more than just a shoot, it is a collaboration of fashion, and a collaboration of art and editorial. Richard Nicoll has collaborated with artist Linder Sterling on a collection of corsetry and suspenders. While Sterling in turn, has colaborated with the photographer in creating these artistic photos for i-D Magazine.
I really love the layers of collage over the photos, it's so fun and light, with that bold charm and suggestive cheekyness! Really, just such a wonderful shoot!
