"Housed inside (and out) of repurposed shipping containers, PHOTOVILLE 2016 will present more than 60 photo exhibitions and outdoor installations, in partnership with a carefully selected group of programming partners from around the globe."
I feel a tiny bit
invested in the Drag Race phenomenon- not only as a die hard fan of the show, but also after working for Zaldy (Ru Paul's
costume maker) for some time. I've since gone on to collaborate with a
handful of the girls on their solo projects. I am impressed by SO many of the queens, and Adore holds a special RIOTGRRL place in my heart! So working with her on her new music video was a total PARTY ;)
You know I don't believe in fashion rules (ANY OF THEM) so the idea that a drag queen must wear heels, must wear sequins, lashes, dresses, must be hyper feminine is silly! And dated ;) We ended up with total Boy George and Anna Piaggi vibes for this video, called "ICU".

Feel especially proud of this shoot which I created for NYLON.
I've been a little bit obsessed with PIA MIA for a hot second, mostly because it's still amazing to me that you can become a famous singer on the basis of instagram alone, but also because she's beautiful and talented. I brought the artist and photographer Signe Pierce on board to capture her spirit, because Signe's work explores the concept of being a young, sexualised woman on the internet and everyday. And also, because she takes gorgeous, saturated images.

Thank you to The London West Hollywood for having us!

WOW! So much has been going on!
Working at NYLON I've had the opportunity to produce some amazing content. There is one particular project I LOVED working on especially. It's called "Just The Tips" and is a video series where we pulled together an array of women to talk about all the things that we chat about when there's no menses around. ;) It's so important that women have digital safe spaces to talk and connect.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we loved creating it!!!
See the whole series here.
