if you didn’t see it on the cover of the new york post or plastered across every news website (and even televised news), the lingerie images i shot for diesel are causing quite a stir. we shot it at a brooklyn law school who were apparently told the images would be tasteful. as the photographer i shot to the brief and really had no idea the things i was shooting would later make people feel uncomfortable and be labelled as ‘shocking’ and ‘disgusting’ (though to be honest, i still don’t really see the fuss). to cause controversy with my first campaign feels strangely good, intended or not. if i can make people feel anything with my images, it’s better than them feeling nothing at all.
they are yet to catch on to the fact a 17 year old shot the images, i wonder what the reaction will be when they do. though i’m betting diesel are loving the publicity.
