Each fashion season, we see that street style photographers and bloggers are becoming increasingly important and influential, sometimes ranking among top fashion editors and stylists. Bill Cunningham, Scott Schulman, and Tommy Ton spring to mind. We can relate to and be inspired by real people wearing clothes creatively, more so than to the unattainable images in most fashion magazines.
“I have a provocative voice, but I’m not being personally antagonistic,” says artist K8 Hardy. “It’s just my style!” Something of a pop culture chameleon, Texas-born, New York-based Hardy has used photography, sculpture, performance and video to investigate and subvert our ideas behind gender, sexuality, class, fashion, politics and art. A founding member of the queer feminist artist collective LTTR, Hardy is also the artist behind the groundbreaking zine FashionFashion, and most recently, the acclaimed photographic series “Position Series”.
