Race and Fashion…again

I wanted to point out a new photoshoot by a pretty famous fashion photographer Sølve Sundsbø:


Check out the comments, the battle gets pretty heated about whether this is appropriate or not.

I agree with one of the commenters that this is very reminiscent of Gisele’s Vanity Fair cover with Lebron and is not entirely appropriate. It also reminds me of the Mapplethorpe photographs, though those had some other goals. And also of the American Express Ad. Gisele seems to be the go-to gal for these kind of pictures.
