The power of photography lies behind the intention. BangBang seeks to reappropriate fashion photography to look at the immense and unexpected field of action calling us to re-examine sartorial images, not only as images that represent beauty, but as images that represent topics that engage conversation, spark debate, and create community.
BangBang playfully creates a distinctly new narrative. Playing off of the work of Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, and David Bailey, Farrah Aviva’s work is a fresh take on where fashion photography as a technical practice can take us in the discussion of contemporary sociopolitical culture.
