This spread is reminiscent to me of the work of another world-renowned fashion photographer named Gavin O’Neil. I have loooong been a fan of his work (see here), which manages to capture the power and beauty of the human body (both male and female) without sexualizing the subject. These images, like Gavin’s, allow you to completely appreciate the models form, angles, beauty, etc. but they don’t objectify her. I love photography like this. It’s an artistic expression that goes so far beyond fashion photography, and so far beyond the reaches of pornography. I hope you appreciate the aesthetic like I do.
