Rick Castro: Beyond The Fetish Frontier

Love the beautiful photography by Rick Castro, seen on Dazed Digital, Rick Castro: Beyond The Fetish Frontier:

There are so many images competing for our attention these days, but one look at fetish photographer Rick Castro’s solemnly beautiful lookbook for Rick Owens’ AW14 Moody menswear stops you dead in your tracks. Here are four older gentlemen, aged sixty to ninety-three, posing almost nude or shrouded in menacing leather and eerily ecclesiastical silhouettes. Castro’s powerful images not only challenge our ideas of beauty and obsession with youth but also the way society has stigmatised the idea of being a sexual being past a certain age.

Really gorgeous.  Do take a look and read the short interview on the Dazed Digital website.

Great way to kick off the week …. Rick Castro: Beyond The Fetish Frontier.
