When it comes to inspirations, Billy Kidd is one that I admire. The video clip below is something I can identify with, especially being a fashion photographer at heart: trusting relationship between an artist and a muse.
“Over the last year, Billy and Heather have been building the trust between artist and muse through brutally honest and erotically vulnerable imagery. With Billy behind the lens, he has been able to coax his lover to shed her insecurities and trust him. Billy beautifully abstracts his lover’s form to convey this strange and eerie bond between anonymity and intimacy. Combining Heather’s cages, braids and cocoons, with Billy’s style of photography; the result does not objectify, but celebrates the mature female body garbed only in her designs.”
