feature: ‘talking bodies’, the stunning photo series from fashionable demand

June 23, 2015

Check out the latest photo series from Milwaukee-based styling collective Fashionable Demand – titled, ‘Talking Bodies’. In regards to inspiration, creative director Michael Ja’Ameer tells us: “The inspiration for ‘Talking Bodies’ came from the Lauryn Hill ”Ex-Factor” video where she was bathed in blue light that highlighted the beauty of her dark skin. For this shoot I wanted to highlight not only the beauty of the model’s dark skin but juxtapose it against dynamic body movements.” Explore the stunning series below.
