Editorial: A New Expression

A gang of friends are dressed for a night of exploration, their vivid outfits acting as armor against bleak surroundings. This collection of colors, textures, and shapes from young New York designers recalls a time when club kids ruled the underworld, their costumes intending to call into question the meaning of gender and beauty as we knew them. Today, these pieces of wearable art shatter the stagnant landscape, forcing the viewer to consider the world from a new angle – through neon-colored glasses.

Photographer Thibault-Théodore Babin’s approach to capturing this phenomenon is one of connection. “I want to look into the eyes of the model. They become engaged in the photograph, and the photograph becomes our shared work. It’s empowering and allows them to express themselves fully through my camera.” His method of consensual creativity provides a space for beauty, art, and expression to live freely, fostering a shockwave of fresh and positive ideas.
