A dichotomy of sensitivity and sensuality, this series creates a dialogue between innocence and sexuality rather than being two isolated themes; embracing the fact that women can have both. Flowers add an innocence to the exposed body, directly confronting the notion that female exposure is shameful and questioning wether female bodies are always sexual when naked. PETAL challenges the delicateness synonymous with womanhood and the gender stereotypes that need breaking for true empowerment of the female form.

everyday friday in korea. Duran Levinson

Shot within two weeks while stopping off in Seoul, this set of photos explores some of the street and fashion culture that makes Seoul such a visually interesting place. The series features street snaps from some of Seoul’s better known locations mixed with fashion photography shot with some of the most interesting and alternative local models. Seoul is a city that has an advance mixture of culture, traditions, fashion, self-expressionism and amazing food, mixed with a crazy party and drinking culture. I learned, on my first night out, that “everyday is Friday in Korea”, which made me delve deep into Korea’s most popular alcoholic beverage, Soju. Between the hangovers and heat waves, I was able to link up with some photographers and crews such as Places + Faces from London and work on some lookbooks and personal projects. This small set of photos encompasses a bigger project that involved shooting in five Asian countries, within two months, for my next book entitled I’m fine today, a self-published venture that will be out early next year.
