Poses / Yolanda Dominguez
Watch real women mimic high fashion model poses in real life. Watch how people react to the indestructible superciliousness that is haute pose. “I tried to express what many women feel about women’s magazines and the image of women in the media – absurd, artificial, a hanger to wear dresses and bags, only concerned about being skinny, beautiful,” explained Dominguez in an...
After the impertinent dropping of bombs on his childhood home during WWII, English photographer David Bailey had to relocate to a new home. “In the winter”, he recalled, the family “would take bread-and-jam sandwiches and go to the cinema every night because in those days it was cheaper to go to the cinema than to put on the gas fire.
